The Clark County Coroner’s Office has identified a 19-year-old who died in an accident Sunday night on Summerlin Parkway.
Alexander R. Lawrence, of Las Vegas, died from multiple injuries suffered when he was ejected from a sport utility vehicle, the coroner said.
Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Loy Hixson said the accident occurred at 10:08 p.m. Sunday on the parkway between Durango and Buffalo drives.
The preliminary investigation indicates Lawrence, who was driving a Toyota FJ Cruiser, swerved to avoid hitting a pedestrian and went off the right side of the road, Hixson said.
Lawrence was not wearing a seatbelt, Hixson said.
Two other male teens in the SUV were transported to University Medical Center, where they were treated for non-life-threatening injuries and released, Hixson said.
No other vehicles were involved. The investigation is ongoing.
