LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a 30-year-old woman is dead after she opened the door of a moving vehicle in Las Vegas.

Police say the crash happened about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday on Torrey Pines Drive, north of West Copperfield Avenue.

The SUV hit a light pole and the passenger was ejected.

She was pronounced dead at the scene. Her name has not yet been released.

The 30-year-old driver was not injured in the crash.
