The Nevada Highway Patrol has released the names of three of the four people involved in Sunday’s road-rage incident that killed a 69-year-old Henderson man.

The crash occurred just before 1 p.m. on northbound Interstate 15 near Mile Marker 93, according to Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Chelsea Stuenkel.

A BMW and Cadilllac were traveling on southbound I-15, boxing in a silver Jeep, according to investigators. A passenger in the Cadillac threw a bottle at the Jeep.

The driver of the Jeep attempted to pass the BMW on the left shoulder. The driver clipped the BMW, lost control, crossed the center median and hit a red Mini Cooper head-on.

The driver of the Mini Cooper, Michael Prinaris, 69, of Henderson, died at the scene. A Nissan SUV then struck the Mini Cooper. Two 73-year-olds in the Nissan were taken to UMC Trauma with nonlife-threatening injuries.

Nan Ying, 24, the driver of the BMW, and Jincheng Sun, 19, the driver of the Cadillac, were charged with misdemeanor reckless driving. Zizilong Wang, 20, a passenger in Sun’s vehicle, was booked for littering.

The identity of the 35-year-old driver of the Jeep has not been released. He sustained life-threatening injuries but is stable at UMC. He has been booked in absentia for felony reckless driving with death.
