The Clark County Coroner’s Office has identified a man killed Thursday morning in a wrong-way crash on the Russell Road bridge over Interstate 15 near the Strip.
Irain Pacheco-Veloz, 32, of Las Vegas, died in the crash, but the coroner hasn't determined a cause of death.
Nevada Highway Patrol troopers believe alcohol might have been a factor in the crash, which happened at 2:51 a.m. Thursday in a construction zone.
A Toyota Camry driven by Pacheco-Veloz was eastbound in the westbound lanes of Russell Road when it was hit by a gray Scion traveling westbound, NHP Trooper Joseph Fackrell said.
Pacheco-Veloz was taken to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the Scion was taken to the hospital for injuries that weren't life-threatening, authorities said.
