Man loses leg in early morning crash

Traffic was diverted from U.S. 95 North to the I-15 South Ramp for nearly 4.5 hours Sunday morning. Trooper Chelsea Webster with Nevada Highway Patrol says all lanes of traffic along U.S. Highway 95 Northbound had to be diverted to the I-15 South ramp Sunday morning after an initial one vehicle crash around 5:20 a.m.

Webster says a gray Nissan was traveling north on 95, south of the Martin Luther King exit. The driver struck the wall and spun around, coming to rest in the number three travel lane. Through NHP’s initial investigation, Webster believes a passenger in the Nissan got out of the car to check the damages. The passenger was then hit by a silver Dodge. The passenger sustained serious injuries and the passenger’s leg was amputated in the crash.

Webster says the driver of the dodge, a female, left the scene while her passenger stayed at the crash site. A short time later, NHP troopers contacted the female driver at her home and arrested her. Webster says the female driver that fled the scene is in custody, arrested for DUI.

Webster says the driver of the Nissan is also being investigated for possibly driving under the influence.

While Troopers were conducting their investigating and performing traffic control, they say an additional crash occurred.

North Las Vegas motorcyclist identified in fatal wreck

A North Las Vegas man was identified as the person who died in a motorcycle crash early Sunday morning.

According to the Clark County Coroner’s Office, Johnston Graves Overbey, 41, died of blunt force injuries as a result of an accident.

North Las Vegas police said speed appeared to be a factor in the crash near Donovan Way and East Craig Road.

Officers were called to the area at about 3:45 a.m. concerning a man down. Police located Overbey, who was unresponsive, and medical personnel pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police said the man was riding a 2005 Harley Davidson southbound on Donovan when he lost control. They said evidence suggests the motorcycle left the roadway and the driver was thrown from the vehicle.

The motorcycle was the only vehicle involved.

This marked the eighth traffic-related fatality in North Las Vegas this year.
