Stolen vehicle involved hit-and-run leads to 3 arrested, Las Vegas

On Wednesday morning, a chaotic scene unfolded in Henderson as three suspects were arrested following a hit-and-run in a stolen vehicle. At 10:35 a.m., Henderson Police and Fire were dispatched to the area of South Green Valley Parkway and Paseo Verde Parkway in response to the incident. According to police, an officer had attempted a traffic stop on the vehicle, but it failed to yield and instead attempted to flee, leading to a collision with two other vehicles. Witnesses reported seeing the three suspects flee from the stolen vehicle before they were quickly apprehended by police. Two passengers from one of the other vehicles were taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while two more passengers from the other vehicle were evaluated at the scene. The situation is still under investigation, but it is clear that the swift response of the Henderson Police and Fire departments prevented a more serious outcome.

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.
