DUI Driver Injures Passenger in Las Vegas Crash
Las Vegas, NV (May 24, 2021) – On Sunday, a 31-year-old male driver and his 24-year-old female passenger were injured in Rainbow Boulevard DUI crash.
Officers responded to the solo-vehicle crash at around 3:30 a.m. at the intersection with Charleston Boulevard.
Apparently, a northbound 2006 Nissan Maxima on Rainbow Boulevard was traveling at an excessive rate of speed.
Consequently, the driver lost control of the vehicle and traveled off the east side of the roadway.
Afterward, the vehicle struck a City of Las Vegas light pole, which got broken at the base.
The Nissan continued moving off-road, and the driver’s side struck the base of a large sign for 1000 South Rainbow Boulevard.
Immediately, rescuers took the driver and his passenger to UMC Trauma.
“Trauma staff determined the driver suffered serious injuries and the front seat passenger suffered critical injuries,” authorities said.
Meanwhile, the officers suspected the driver was impaired, so a DUI investigation was conducted.
Later on, they booked the driver in absentia at the Clark County Detention Center.
Moreover, be a responsible driver all the time. Never drink alcoholic, or take illegal drugs, especially when driving.
