A man was killed late Monday night when the Hyundai car he was driving was hit by a Jeep Wrangler that ran a red light, the Nevada Highway Patrol said.

The driver of the Jeep, identified as 41-year-old Las Vegas resident Michael McNamee, suffered minor injuries and was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on suspicion of drunken driving, Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Loy Hixson said.

The Jeep was headed east on Blue Diamond Road about 11:30 p.m. when it ran a red light at Decatur Boulevard and hit the driver’s side of the Hyundai, which was turning left onto Blue Diamond Road, Hixson said. Both vehicles spun counter-clockwise while traveling northeast in the intersection, Hixson said.

The driver of the Hyundai, 57-year-old Las Vegas resident Robert George Williams, died from his injuries while en route to University Medical Center, Hixson said.
