LAS VEGAS (AP) --
Hospital officials say the second man who tried to stop a pickup truck theft in Las Vegas over the weekend has died of his injuries.

The Clark County coroner's office says 31-year-old Felix Brandon Cruz died at 6:22 p.m. Monday.

His brother-in-law, Jesus Manuel Magdaleno Jr., was killed in the crash Sunday morning.

Authorities say Magdaleno was a California Highway Patrol officer in town for his bachelor party when a man started to drive his truck away from a casino valet stand with Cruz still in the truck bed.

Magdaleno jumped into the truck bed with Cruz, but both were thrown out when the pickup crashed.

Police say 29-year-old James Robert Montgomery of Tustin, Calif., is jailed on felony murder, kidnapping, auto theft and other charges.
