LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A day after a fatal crash in the east valley, a new traffic light is now up and running at the intersection where it happened.

Clark County Commissioner Tick Segerbloom was joined this morning by Nevada State Sen. James Ohrenschall to activate the signal at Sahara Avenue and Winterwood.

That's just east of Nellis Boulevard.

Yesterday, Las Vegas police say a 56-year-old man was killed in a wreck involving a car and motorcycle.
