Police are investigating a deadly crash in the northeastern part of Clark County.

It was reported around 1:45 p.m. on Monday on New Gold Butte Road in Bunkerville. Police say a Jeep Cherokee was traveling north on New Gold Butte Road when the road made a sharp turn to the right and the vehicle was unable to make the turn, resulting in a rollover.

The driver, a 46-year-old Mesquite man, was pronounced dead on the scene. The coroner identified the man as Randall Widmann. A second victim, a 36-year-old woman from New Jersey, was taken to Mesa View Hospital in Mesquite with minor injuries.

This was the 29th traffic-related fatality in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's jurisdiction in 2016.
