Las Vegas, NV (July 20, 2022) – On Tuesday afternoon, the authorities arrested 18-year-old Jerry Madera in a DUI crash on Washington Avenue killing a 33-year-old Las Vegas woman.

The authorities received the multi-vehicle crash report at about 2:29 p.m. at the intersection with Torrey Pines Drive.

According to the investigators, a westbound Toyota Rav 4 SUV driven by Jerry Madera was traveling at a high rate of speed. The vehicle ran a red light and collided with a Mazda CX-5 SUV that was turning left from the southbound lanes of Torrey Pines.
