August 4, 2019

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police in North Las Vegas say a man has died after a fiery car crash.

The say officers were called to the scene early Saturday.

Police believe a 21-year-old man driving a pickup truck was attempting to make a left turn when it collided with a luxury car.

Witnessed say the pickup allegedly didn’t yield the right of way, crashed into a traffic-control device and then burst into flames.

North Las Vegas police say when officers arrived, the truck was engulfed in flames.

City firefighters were unable to get the driver out of the vehicle and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say neither speed nor impairment are considered factors in the crash.

The Clark County coroner will release the victim’s name after his family has been notified.
