Man Dies in Traffic Accident

LAS VEGAS -- A 49-year-old man was killed Saturday afternoon after his van drifted into the path of an SUV and then hit a concrete pillar.

Metro Police say the accident happened around 1:55 p.m. on Owens Ave. just east of Las Vegas Blvd. Officers say a man driving a Chevy Astro Van traveling eastbound drifted into the path of a Nissan Exterra also going eastbound.

The van then ran off the road and hit a pillar.  The driver of the van was taken to North Vista Hospital where he was pronounced dead. It is unclear if he had a medical episode before the crash.

The driver and a passenger in the SUV were not hurt. The victim has not yet been identified. The crash remains under investigation.
