The male driver was ejected from the truck and died at the scene from severe head trauma. Fatal detail is at the scene investigating and they ask for people to avoid the area.
This fatal crash was 100% preventable! When speed and no seatbelt are combined, the chances of surviving this crash are zero!! The choices we MAKE when we are behind the wheel of a vehicle are, literally, life or death. #zerofatalities #changestartswithyou #changestartswithme pic.twitter.com/onWfSa7Vrf— LVMPD Traffic Bureau (@LVMPD_Traffic) April 28, 2019
