Two teens killed in single-vehicle accident in the NE Vegas Valley

Two teenagers tragically lost their lives in an early Wednesday morning crash in east Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reported that the incident occurred at 2:09 a.m. on East Lake Mead Boulevard west of Los Feliz Street. Investigators revealed that evidence and video surveillance showed a 2002 Chevrolet Trail Blazer had been travelling westbound at a dangerously high rate of speed. Police also noted that neither of the two juveniles, aged 17 and 18, had been wearing seat belts. It is believed that the driver was unable to maintain control of the vehicle which then left the roadway and struck a brick wall. The vehicle then bounced back onto the road, and the passenger was ejected. Both teens were pronounced dead at the scene. The collision is still under investigation.

No more information is available at this time.

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.
