LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A 52-year-old man arrested in connection with a fatal three-vehicle crash Thursday morning in Sunrise Manor is being held on $100,000 bail.

If Derek Herman makes bail he will be placed on high-level electronic monitoring with drug and alcohol monitoring. His next court day is Sept. 21.
