A Dodge Dakota and Toyota SUV collided in the early hours of Saturday, January 1st in North Las Vegas.
The collision occurred at 2:15 a.m. at the intersection of Alexander and Commerce.
According to reports, the Dodge was traveling at a high rate of speed before swerving and crashing into the stopped Toyota SUV.
Upon impact, the male driver of the Dodge, in his 30s, suffered severe trauma and was taken to UMC.
Sadly, despite-life saving efforts, the unidentified man died in the hospital due to his injuries.
Both speed and alcohol are believed to have factored into the collision.

According to NHTSA, more than a quarter (25%) of accident-related deaths are linked to the use of alcohol. With that being said, according to the CDC, there are 30 people that are killed everyday in a car accident as a result of an alcohol-impaired driver. That is equivalent to one death every 50 minutes.
