A 31-year-old man died Wednesday night after crashing into the back of a double-decker Regional Transportation Commission bus on Flamingo Road near U.S. 95. None of the 11 people on the RTC bus were injured. The Nevada Highway Patrol said the driver of the sedan was believed to be impaired. The driver of the sedan was not wearing his seat belt, NHP spokesman Jason Buratczuk said, but he was sitting on his seat belt, which was buckled. The man’s death marks the fifth fatal crash NHP has investigated this year. In 2016 there were 60 fatal crashes on Nevada highways involving people who were not wearing seat belts, Buratczuk said.
The Regional Transportation Commission offered up potential safety measures, like reducing wrap ads on buses and live stream cameras inside the buses, following a shooting inside an RTC bus in March. (Elaine Wilson/Las Vegas Review-Journal)
