The accident happened on the westbound Highway 62 North. 40 year-old Nikolas Samouhos, driving a Toyota Tacoma, was one of the three cars that were involved in the collision. His was trapped in the wreckage of his overturned car and had to be extricated form the vehicle by firefighters. Mr. Samouhos was transported to the hospital, but unfortunately did not survive the injuries he sustained in the crash – he was pronounced dead at 4:12p.m. at the Desert Regional Medical Center.
