NHP SEEKING WITNESSES TO FATAL CRASH AT BLUE DIAMOND ROAD AND EL CAPITAN WAY
On Sunday, December 15, 2019, at approximately 5:08 AM, Nevada Highway Patrol responded to a crash located at the intersection Blue Diamond Road and El Capitan Way.
Preliminary investigation has determined that a white 2017 Honda CR-V was traveling westbound on Blue Diamond Road in the left turn lane at the intersection with El Capitan Way. At the same time, a white 2015 Honda Civic was traveling eastbound on Blue Diamond Road approaching El Capitan Way. The CR-V entered the intersection directly in front of the Civic, causing the Civic to strike the CR-V. The Honda Civic was then redirected into a traffic sign and a wooden billboard located southeast of the intersection. The driver of the Honda Civic was transported to University Medical Center, where he later succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash and was pronounced deceased on December 26, 2019.
The male operator of the Honda Civic has been identified as 72 year old Robert Glenn Largen from Henderson, Nevada.
