California man killed in Vegas crash; driver faces DUI case
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities in Las Vegas have identified a 55-year-old California man killed in a weekend crash involving a driver now jailed on felony driving under the influence and reckless driving charges.
The Clark County coroner and Las Vegas police say Scott Fix was driving a Ford Fusion that was struck in the side by a speeding Ford Focus a little after 2 a.m. Sunday at a northwest Las Vegas intersection.
Fix was from Tehachapi, California. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
His passenger, 54-year-old Ronald Fix of Laguna Niguel, California, was hospitalized with critical injuries.
Police say the driver of the Focus, 29-year-old Jayson Salzman of Henderson, was treated for minor injuries and jailed pending a court appearance.
It wasn’t immediately clear if Salzman had an attorney to comment about his arrest.
