Updated June 24, 2022 - 1:33 pm

A 43-year-old man died after a crash Wednesday night in North Las Vegas.

A Cadillac heading east on West Carey Avenue, between North Rancho Drive and North Simmons Street, struck a semitrailer that was turning onto Carey at 10:20 p.m., according to North Las Vegas Police Department Sgt. Jeff Wall.

The Clark County coroner’s office said John Holmes died early Thursday from his injuries.

No one else was injured. Wall said that, although an investigation was ongoing, excessive speed appeared to be a factor in the crash.
