Wrong-Way Accidents Turn Deadly in Las Vegas on 15 Freeway and 215 Freeway
LAS VEGAS, NV (January 7, 2020) — At least one person died in two separate wrong-way collisions that unfolded near the 15 Freeway and 215 Freeway this past weekend.
According to officials, the first crash happened around 11:00 p.m. Saturday when a wrong-way passenger vehicle plowed into a tractor-trailer on the 15 Freeway near Jean. However, it is uncertain what drove the car accident in the first place and what possible factors played a role.
Just a couple of hours later, a second wrong-way collision ensued around 2:00 a.m. Sunday. On the 215 Freeway, a wrong-way vehicle collided with another car.
Four people involved in the two-vehicle crash sustained unknown injuries and sought treatment at University Medical Center Trauma.
Per California Highway Patrol officers, a 41-year-old woman who was not a passenger in the wrong-way car perished in the collision.
Impairment does seem to be a contributing factor in the crash. As far as the victims’ identities, they should be released by the Clark County coroner office once the next of kin is notified.
