Las Vegas Man Dies After Medical Episode While Driving

On Wednesday evening, February 4, a man from Las Vegas died in a single vehicle car accident but it is thought it was due to a medical episode while driving.

According to police, the accident happened shortly before 6 p.m. at the intersection of Buffalo Drive and Cheyenne Avenue. Michael Lemcool, aged 60 was driving a 2006 Dodge Caravan on Buffalo Drive. It appears that he suffered a medical episode and began to drive the vehicle into oncoming traffic. He then veered off the road and hit a power pole.

He was taken to Mountain View Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

According to the Clark County Coroner’s Office, his death was due to the medical episode and not related to the accident and was therefore registered as a natural death

His passenger, a 59 year old woman from Las Vegas was not injured
