Las Vegas Metro police said five vehicles were involved in a crash Wednesday night near the intersection of South Nellis Boulevard and East Harmon Avenue.
Police said one person was ejected in the crash and that at least one person was taken to a hospital with a head injury.
A spokesman for the department said the injuries do not appear to be life-threatening.
Police said it appeared one of the drivers involved in the wreck swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle, and then that driver’s vehicle struck several vehicles parked in a Walmart lot.
Police closed some lanes of traffic at the intersection in order to investigate and clear the crash scene.
A deadly crash that shut down a portion of Boulder Highway Wednesday may have happened because of a medical episode, according to Metro Police.
The three-vehicle crash happened in the northbound lanes of S. Boulder Highway at E. Russell Road shortly before 1 p.m.
Metro said witness told them a 2013 Acura was stopped in the right lane of one of the left turn lanes on southbound Boulder Highway at Russell Road when a 2013 Ford F-150 rear ended the Acura. After impact, the Ford F-150 continued southeast across the intersection into the northbound lanes and sideswiped the left side of the 2014 Ford Flex.
The Ford F-150 finally stopped on the east side of Boulder Highway.
Police said the 63-year-old driver of the Ford F-150 was taken to St. Rose Dominican Hospital, the Rose de Lima Campus, where he was pronounced dead. Metro said he suffered a medical episode prior to the accident.
The 64-year-old passenger of the Ford Flex was also taken to the hospital with minor to moderate injuries, Metro said.
The 30-year-old driver of the Acura received minor injuries, but she wasn’t taken to the hospital.
This crash remains under investigation by the LVMPD Accident Investigation Section.
A car caught fire caused delays in the southbound I-15 Wednesday morning, and a fire truck has blocked the northbound lanes, causing traffic delays for commuters heading both directions.
No one was hurt in the incident.
