Driver dead in second accident after fleeing hit-and-run crash in Las Vegas,NV

On the evening of July 3rd 2023, a driver fleeing a hit-and-run crash died after hitting a cement barrier in the far northwest Las Vegas Valley, according to a news release from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. The crash occurred at 7:01 p.m. on Jones Boulevard, north of Jalisco Avenue. LVMPD investigators determined the driver of a 2010 Toyota Corolla had been traveling northbound on Jones at an excessive speed in an attempt to flee the scene of a separate hit-and-run collision. Satellite images show that in that part of the valley, Jones Boulevard terminates west of Jalisco Avenue, with undeveloped desert beyond the end of the road. The driver failed to obey a traffic sign warning that Jones Boulevard was closed and crashed into the concrete barriers. The Toyota then caught on fire, and emergency responders determined the driver was beyond medical resuscitation. The driver was pronounced dead at the collision scene.
