A 55-year-old Las Vegas man is dead after the car he was driving crashed down into a drainage ditch in Henderson.
The Clark County coroner's office identifies the dead man as Timothy James Brown.
Police say he was driving a 2005 Mazda when it ran off on Gibson Road and through a chain link fence near Caption Way about 11:40 p.m. yesterday (Sunday).
The car rolled over on its roof in a drainage culvert and caught fire.
Police say Brown died at the scene.
The coroner's office is withholding a cause of death until toxicology tests to determine if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash.
