A 51-year-old Las Vegas man has been killed and three other people injured in a two-car crash Friday night near Spring Mountain and Lindell roads.
Police say the victim was a backseat passenger in a BMW who was ejected from the car in the crash in the 5100 block Spring Mountain Road about 11:30 p.m. The man was identified as 51-year-old Ki Wyung Lee of Las Vegas. He was not wearing a seatbelt and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators say the 2011 BMW 528i was pulling out of a private driveway when it was struck by a 2006 Infinity G35 that was traveling at a high rate of speed.
Police say the driver of the Infinity, 21-year-old Matthew Myers of Las Vegas, suffered critical but non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the BMW, 35-year-old Chunki Park, and another passenger, 25-year-old Nari Park -- both of Las Vegas, were transported to UMC Trauma with non life-threatening injuries. They were both wearing seatbelts.

This was the 118th traffic-related fatality in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's jurisdiction in 2015.
