HENDERSON -- A 66-year-old Henderson man died Saturday after having a medical episode while driving and then crashing his car.

Henderson police reported that the man was driving a 2012 Chevrolet Malibu westbound on Galleria Drive at Marks Street about 12:30 p.m. when the car went off the roadway. The man was found slumped over the wheel unconscious and may have suffered a heart attack. He was taken to St. Rose Hospitals–Rose de Lima Campus where he died.

The preliminary investigation indicated that he likely had a medical episode before the crash. The car drove off the roadway onto the sidewalk striking a jersey wall and riding along the wall. The car continued more than 200 feet through the intersection sideswiping a light pole. No one else was in the car and no other vehicles were involved.

Speed, drugs and alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the crash. The roadway was closed for nearly three hours while accident investigators conducted their investigation.

A Clark County medical examiner determined that the man had a medicals episode before the accident. The death will not be considered a traffic fatality.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
