The driver of a pickup truck died after rear-ending an SUV that had just made a U-turn Monday in the northwest valley, according to Metro Police.

The crash happened about 7 p.m. at Tenaya Way and Old Mission Drive, police said.

The pickup was headed north on Tenaya at a “high rate of speed” when it collided with the SUV, which was initially headed south and had just made a U-turn into the northbound lanes, police said. The pickup truck then hit a brick wall, police said.

The driver of the pickup, a 39-year-old Las Vegas man, was taken to MountainView Hospital, where he later died, police said. His name was not released, pending notification of his family.

The driver of the SUV and two passengers suffered minor to moderate injuries, while a 3-month-old baby was not hurt, police said.

The crash remains under investigation, police said.
