LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3)-- A 54-year-old man died Sunday in a single-vehicle rollover crash on Cheyenne Avenue, Metro police said.

According to officers the man drove his black 2000 Lexus into the opposite lane of traffic around 8:30 a.m., striking light poles and overturning 
on Cheyenne Avenue, west of Michael Way.

Witnesses told police that the Lexus was headed westbound on Cheyenne when it stopped at Michael Way and the 53-year-old passenger, Susan Douglass, exited the car and stood by the driver's door before the Lexus sped off knocking her to the ground.


The Lexus crossed Michael Way, went over the center median and entered the eastbound lanes of traffic before striking two streetlight poles, police said.

The man was transported to UMC Trauma where he was pronounced dead, according to police. This is the 13th traffic related fatality in Metro's jurisdiction this year.

The man's identity will be released by the Clark County Coroner's Office pending notification of next of kin. 

Officers are not sure what caused the man to drive onto the wrong side of the road. The crash remains under investigation by police.
