According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the accident was a “chaotic occurrence” that occurred at 3 p.m. local time, according to Alexander Cuevas, a spokesperson for the police.

According to him, the collision was caused by a motorist in a maroon Dodge Challenger who was speeding through a red light. He further said that the Challenger’s driver and a passenger were killed.

Cuevas said that one of those slain died after being transferred to a hospital. He stated that the seriously wounded victim was under treatment at University Medical Center.
