Three injured during multi-vehicle crash in northwest Las Vegas
On Wednesday evening, a four-vehicle accident occurred at the intersection of Rainbow Boulevard and Gowan Road in the northwest Las Vegas valley. Initial reports suggest that the crash was caused by a 2014 Hyundai Veloster that was traveling westbound on Gowan Road at an excessive speed and failed to stop for a solid red traffic signal. The Hyundai impacted a 2015 Kia Sorento that was traveling northbound on Rainbow Boulevard, resulting in the Kia overturning onto its passenger side. The Hyundai then impacted a 2019 Ford F-150 that was stopped at the intersection facing south, and a 2010 Toyota Camry was struck by debris. Three people were hospitalized as a result of the accident; the occupants of the Hyundai and Kia were transported to UMC Trauma, where the Hyundai’s occupants were determined to have suffered critical injuries and the Kia’s driver suffered minor injuries. In order to determine if impairment was a factor in the accident, a blood draw search warrant was obtained.
