LAS VEGAS, NV (September 23, 2020) – On September 15, authorities arrested Katie Moriarty after a crash on Fort Apache Road. A week later, Estevan Lejardi has died from the injuries he sustained in the Henderson accident.
The incident occurred at around 1:00 p.m. on Fort Apache Road and Lake North Drive, near Fort Apache and Sahara.
According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, a 2006 Toyota Highlander traveled southbound on Fort Apache Road. As the Toyota traveled in the left turn lane, a northbound 2019 BMW M5 drove on Fort Apache Road in the far right lane.
The BMW then approached the intersection on a green light as the Toyota turned left. As a result, the front of the BMW struck the right side of the Toyota. The force caused both vehicles to spin and struck nearby cars.
Responders transported the 78-year-old male Toyota driver to University Medical Center in critical condition. Meanwhile, authorities arrested a BMW driver, identified as 31-year-old Katie Moriarty. According to reports, Katie Moriarty failed a field sobriety test.
The authorities advised motorists to avoid the area while police investigate at the scene.
