A car ran a stop sign early Sunday morning in Summerlin, striking another vehicle and killing its two occupants, Metro Police said.
The crash happened at 12:28 a.m. at the intersection of Town Center Drive and Flamingo Road, police said.
The preliminary investigation indicates the driver, a 23-year Las Vegas man, was driving a 2010 Subaru Impreza east on Flamingo Road when he ran the stop sign and collided with a 2012 Hyundai Sonata, police said.
The Hyundai, which had been traveling south on Town Center Drive, immediately caught fire, police said.
The driver of the Hyundai, a 67-year-old man, and his 57-year-old female passenger died at the scene, police said. Both were from Las Vegas.
Paramedics transported the Subaru driver to University Medical Center with minor injuries, police said.
The Clark County Coroner's Office will identify the victims pending notification of their families.
Police are continuing to investigate the accident, which resulted in the 42nd and 43rd traffic-related fatalities in Metro's jurisdiction this year.
