A North Las Vegas police detective has died from injuries sustained in a head-on collision with a wrong-way driver Friday afternoon. 

It was unclear what caused the other driver to cross over onto the wrong way of traffic on Martin Luther King Blvd, causing the accident. 

The department tweeted early Saturday morning, "It is with a heavy heart we announce the passing of our detective. Thank you for your continued love and support."

The fallen police detective's identity has not yet been released.
