UPDATE: The Clark County Coroner identified the BMW driver as 56-year-old Reynaldo Soto Molina.
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- One person has died, and several were injured in a multiple-vehicle crash just east of the Las Vegas Strip Friday night.
The crash was reported around 9:40 p.m. near Koval Lane and Tropicana Avenue.
Police said a BMW was speeding when it sideswiped a Kia Optima that was stopped at a red light. The BMW continued westbound into the intersection and struck a Ford Escape that was making a left turn. The force of the impact caused the Ford to rotate as it slid into a Nissan Juke, who was behind the Ford making the same turn. The Nissan was pushed backwards into a Toyota Camry.
The driver of the BMW was not wearing a seatbelt and died as a result of the crash. Four people from the other vehicles were transported to University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.
Tropicana Avenue was closed in both directions after the crash.
The collision remains under investigation by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.
