LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a 48-year-old driver and his female passenger are dead after their car slammed into a utility pole east of downtown Las Vegas.
The single-vehicle crash was reported just before 11 p.m. Tuesday on Oakey Boulevard near Fremont Street.
Police say they’re investigating why the 1990 Chrysler Fifth Avenue left the roadway and struck the pole.
Both people inside were pronounced dead at the scene.
Their names weren’t immediately made public.
