Driver runs red light and killed during the accident that followed in Las Vegas, NV

A woman passed away Tuesday morning due to injuries sustained in a car crash in North Las Vegas, the city’s police department revealed in a news release. Police reported the crash occurred at 11:36 p.m. at the intersection of Cheyenne Avenue and Losee Road. Investigators assumed the driver of a black Honda Accord had ”failed to stop” for a red light at the intersection. At the same time, a Nissan Sentra was travelling southbound through the intersection on a green light, and was struck by the Honda. The collision’s force ”caused the Honda to leave the roadway and hit a palm tree,” according to police. The driver of the Honda, described by police as a female in her early 20s, had ”serious, life-threatening” injuries and was taken to University Medical Center’s trauma center.

Police were told early Tuesday morning that the driver had died from her injuries. The driver and passengers of the Nissan Sentra were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, police noted.

No more information is available at this time.
