LAS VEGAS, NV (May 24, 2019) — A man died after an alleged DUI Accident in the west Las Vegas Valley on Wednesday, May 22.

Matchko said that it was a two-car crash. Paramedics rushed one driver to a hospital. Officers detained the other driver on suspicion of impairment.
 
In a statement released later in the morning, LVMPD said that evidence pointed out that a 2018 Lincoln MKX traveled west on Preakness at a high rate of speed.
 
A 2016 Ford Fusion made a left turn from Churchill onto Preakness, and the Lincoln struck the Ford’s driver side.
