A 31-year-old man died in a single-car crash early this morning, North Las Vegas Police said.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency medical crews, police said. His identity and cause of death will be announced by the Clark County Coroner's Office.

North Las Vegas traffic investigators said the man was not wearing a seatbelt.
