A 79-year-old Las Vegas man was killed Thursday night after a two-vehicle collision in Summerlin, police said.

A 2021 Chevrolet Silverado collided with a 1991 Toyota Camry near North Rampart Boulevard and Tournament Hills Drive at about 7:30 p.m., police said.

Las Vegas police traffic Lt. Bret Ficklin said the truck, driven by a 39-year-old North Las Vegas woman, was making a left turn out of the Bruce Trent Park parking lot to head south on Rampart when it collided with the man’s Camry as it traveled north on Rampart. There were three teenaged boys in the woman’s truck at the time.

The driver of the Camry was taken to University Medical Center and pronounced dead, Ficklin said. The woman and the three teens also suffered injuries.

North Rampart Boulevard was closed in both directions from Tournament Hills Drive to Summerlin Parkway for hours.

The driver of the car was the only person in that vehicle. All four occupants of the truck were taken to Summerlin Hospital as a precaution due to claimed injuries, according to Ficklin.
