Las Vegas, NV (September 27, 2021) – Officers with the Las Vegas Police Department are investigating a deadly overnight accident that happened in the east part of town on Monday, September 27.
Authorities responded to the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Lamb Boulevard just after 2:00 a.m. Their initial reports indicate that a 2020 Toyota Corolla entered the intersection while traveling westbound. The driver allegedly ran a red traffic signal and hit another vehicle. The second driver was also operating a Corolla and was traveling south through the intersection.
Medical personnel transported the 22-year-old Corolla driver to Sunrise Hospital in critical condition. He sustained fatal injuries, however, and medical authorities pronounced him dead on arrival.
EMS also took a passenger of that car to the University Medical Center in critical condition.
Officers say the driver of the 2020 Corolla, which ran the red light, suffered serious injuries as well. The driver showed signs of impairment, and police arrested them after paramedics treated them.
Investigators are still piecing together the events causing the wreck and have not provided any other information about the victims.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the deceased victim. Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
