LAS VEGAS -- The girl killed in a New Year's day sledding accident has been identified by the Clark County coroner as 11-year-old Vanesa Lara of Las Vegas.
Initially, it was reported that the girl was 8 years old. Lara died after suffering head injuries while sledding in the Foxtail Mountain sledding area of Mt. Charleston.
Some medical providers say they often deal with Hispanic patients who are afraid to seek medical care. It's hoped the opening of a new medical clinic will change that.
