Driver ID'd in crash at U.S. 95 and Craig

LAS VEGAS -- The woman killed in a crash on U.S. 95 Thursday evening has been identified as 38-year-old Alycia Marie Fox of North Las Vegas, according to the Clark County Coroner's office.

Nevada Highway Patrol said the crash happened around 5:40 p.m. near the off ramp of US 95 and W. Craig Road.  

A Lincoln Navigator was traveling south on US 95 when the driver lost control and the SUV crashed into a fence.  Accident investigators said the SUV stopped in front of a storm drain.

NHP said Fox died at the scene.  

"We are definitely lucky that there weren't any other vehicles involved, but again here's an incident where we said we do suspect impairment was involved,” said NHP Trooper, Loy Hixson. “We are always reminding people, especially in during times when we know there are going to be holiday parties that you never want to get behind the wheel after you've been drinking. You never ever want to get behind the wheel when you are impaired, whether that's medication, prescription drugs or even illegal drugs.”

This was the 58th fatal crash Nevada Highway Patrol has investigated this year.  It's the 28th involving impairment of some kind.
