A man died Friday night after his car was hit by a woman believed to be driving under the influence of alcohol, North Las Vegas Police spokeswoman Chrissie Coon said.

Police responded to the collision at about 5:35 p.m. on Craig Road and Home Depot Drive, just east of Martin Luther King Boulevard. Police arrived to find a 54-year-old man dead, trapped inside a Ford sedan that had struck a light pole.

Preliminary investigations indicated that the Ford sedan was turning right onto Home Depot Drive off Craig Road when a Hyundai SUV rear-ended him, Coon said. The collision caused the man to crash into a light pole killing him, Coon said.

Police arrested the driver of the Hyundai, 27-year-old Courtney Hildinger, on one felony count of driving under the influence with death.
