Moped Driver Dies after Crashing into Car at Pecos and East Russell Roads
LAS VEGAS, NV (August 22, 2019) – A man was killed after his moped crashed into a car Thursday evening in the central valley.
Around 8:00 p.m., a 2018 Yongfu scooter was heading south on Pecos Road when it overturned on East Russell Road. It then slid into the driver’s side of a 2019 Honda Insight, which was pulling out of a private driveway.
As a result, the moped driver suffered multiple blunt force injuries. He was rushed to Sunrise Hospital, where he was declared dead.
The Clark County coroner’s office identified the victim as Douglas Michael Jeffries, 47, of North Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, the Honda driver, a 27-year-old Las Vegas man, was unharmed.
Police said impairment was not a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
