1 Killed and 3 Injured in Las Vegas Pedestrian Crash on Eastern Avenue and Bonanza Road
LAS VEGAS, NV (December 17, 2020) – Tuesday afternoon, a woman died and Leonor Rodriguez sustained injuries in a pedestrian crash on Eastern Avenue and Bonanza Road.
According to Metro Lt. Bret Ficklin of the Traffic Bureau, a northbound white Mustang failed to yield at a red light. Then, it struck a westbound Nissan Pathfinder driving from an intersection. Moreover, the Mustang struck the pathfinder at the passenger side of the vehicle.
Thus, the force of the crash pushed the Pathfinder and struck a mother and her two children crossing at the northeastern corner of the intersection.
Responders transported the family to UMC Trauma where the mother was later pronounced dead. Meanwhile, the two children sustained non-life-threatening injuries in the crash.
44-year-old Leonor Rivera Rodriguez, the driver of the Pathfinder, was taken to Sunrise Trauma with non-life-threatening injuries.
The driver of the Mustang along with a 16-year-old passenger remained at the scene of the crash.
The incident is under active investigation.
