Coroner ID's Man Killed in Sunday Morning Crash

The Clark County Coroner's office has identified the man killed in a crash early Sunday morning as 23-year-old Brian Jared Peters.

The coroner says he died from multiple blunt force trauma.

Peters was a passenger in a car that crashed into a wall near Pebble Road and Carnegie Street at about 2:20 a.m.

At the intersection, drivers must turn right or left, but according to Henderson Police, the driver of the car, 24-year-old Arnold Cheung, continued straight and hit a block wall.

Both Cheung and Peters were trapped in the car. Rescue crews had to extricate Cheung from the car. He was taken to Sunrise Hospital's Trauma Unit for treatment. Peters died at the scene.

Police believe speed and alcohol may be factors in the crash. Blood was drawn from Cheung at the hospital. He will face DUI with death charges, if his blood alcohol content was above the legal limit, police said.

Friends and family of Peters are planning a vigil at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the scene of the crash.
