LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — One person is dead after a collision involving a car and a trike shortly before 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

It happened on westbound Sahara Avenue at the I-15 northbound ramp.

Nevada Highway Patrol’s preliminary investigation has determined that a silver Chrysler sedan was turning left from eastbound Sahara onto northbound I-15.

At the same time a red CanAm Trike was travelling westbound on Sahara Ave.

For reasons unknown, the CanAm continued into the intersection against the red traffic light and entered the path of the Chrysler causing the vehicles to collide.

The adult male rider of the CanAm was transported to UMC Trauma where he succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash and was pronounced deceased.

The Clark County coroner will release the name of the deceased after proper notification.
