LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says its officers responded to a call at about 5:53 p.m.near Decatur and Twain for a crash that has turned fatal.

Police say 3 vehicles were involved in the crash, a Scion with 1 adult male, a Hyundai SUV with 1 adult male, and a Camaro with 1 adult female.

LVMPD says the preliminary investigation appears to show that the Scion was going southbound on Decatur when he sideswiped the Hyundai SUV, which was also going southbound.

The Scion then swerved into oncoming traffic, going southbound in the northbound lanes, and crashed head-on with the Camaro, according to authorities.
