Elderly woman killed in accident near Pecos and Flamingo Rd

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reported that a fatal three-vehicle crash earlier this week in the east valley resulted in the death of a 75-year-old woman. The woman had been driving a Chrysler, stopped at a red light behind a Subaru in the same travel lane on S. Pecos Road south of E. Flamingo Road. A 28-year-old driver of a Nissan was approaching the intersection, but failed to decrease speed and stop, hitting the Chrysler and forcing it to hit the Subaru. The Chrysler driver was taken to Sunrise Hospital but later succumbed to her injuries. The Subaru’s driver (63) and passenger (62) suffered minor injuries. The 28-year-old driver showed signs of impairment and was arrested on DUI-related charges.

Help in a Crisis

Following a traumatic event, people often feel helpless, confused, and experience emotional shock. They are confronted with a situation for which they are totally unprepared.

Often there is no one available in the immediate aftermath of a tragedy to guide the victims through these difficult hours. The TIP volunteer provides this necessary temporary support until persons involved in the crisis are able to depend on family, friends, neighbors, and other resources in the community.
