LAUGHLIN (AP) — An Ohio man driving a convertible muscle car in Southern Nevada died after running a stoplight and hitting a boulder in a roadway median, flipping the Camaro he was driving.

Authorities say the wreck happened in the Colorado River resort city of Laughlin just before midnight Thursday.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says the 53-year-old resident of Circleville, Ohio, was driving a 2019 Chevrolet Camaro SS and not wearing a seat belt when he was ejected after the car rolled over.

The coroner for Clark County will release the man's name after his relatives are notified.

Laughlin is about 90 miles south of Las Vegas.
