Sparks, NV (August 13, 2020) – The Sparks Police Department charged a new suspect, 23-year-old Luis Guerrero, for being involved in a fatal crash on Battle Born Way.
The incident happened at around 6 p.m. on Battle Born Way underneath the railroad overpass. It is between Kietzke Lane and Victorian Avenue.
Authorities said there have been some fights between Guerrero and the group of people earlier at the Grand Sierra Resort. They also suspect a possible robbery.
The group of five people left the GSR walked north on Battle Born Way. At the same time, Guerrero was driving northbound and ran the group down.
As a result, an 18-year-old woman died at the scene.
Meanwhile, the rescuers rushed two 17-year-old males and a 19-year-old man to Renown Medical in critical condition. Another 22-year-old man was also taken to the hospital.
Authorities said Guerrero and his two passengers drove off with one of the victims still on top of his vehicle for a couple of blocks.
Detectives located Guerrero and his two passengers. All of them were interviewed, and Guerrero was arrested and booked into the Washoe County Jail.
He is facing several charges, which include open murder, four counts of battery with a deadly weapon causing possible bodily harm, and five counts of failing to stop at the scene of an accident causing death or injury.

Who Can the Deceased’s Family Turn To?
As the loved ones of a deceased victim grieve, it is difficult to accept such a loss that could have been prevented. This is quite common in accidents that result in death. Therefore, it is crucial that the family of the victim becomes aware that they have the authority to file a wrongful death suit.
A wrongful death lawsuit gives the loved ones of a departed family member some semblance of justice.
“The aftermath of tragic accidents can make everything difficult for a family. The last thing most families want to deal with is piles of paperwork, questions from insurance companies or defense attorneys, and attempting to obtain police reports. Grieving and handling legal claims don’t exactly go hand in hand, and this is why hiring an experienced attorney can not only provide you with peace of mind that you have a fighter in your corner but also having someone to make sure that your rights are respected and that justice will be served. Having legal representation after such a traumatic event will provide your family the space to heal while ensuring that justice is brought to your loved one,” says Mark Sweet, a seasoned attorney at Sweet Lawyers.
