The Las Vegas Metro Police Department says the Ford Explorer was traveling south on a dirt road when the driver lost control, causing the vehicle to roll. The 19-year-old driver was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene.

The 17-year-old passenger, also from Laughlin, was not hurt and called the crash into police.
