Local News

GLENDALE, Nev. (KLAS) — Two people are dead following a single-vehicle crash on SR 168 at mile marker 11 in Clark County, near Glendale. The Nevada Highway Patrol confirmed the two deaths Sunday afternoon.

Officials say the 1995 Lexus Sedan was driving westbound, left the roadway and entered the right shoulder for unknown reasons. The driver then overcorrected, crossed both lanes and left the roadway.

The car came to rest in a ravine on the eastbound side of SR 168.

The 19-year-old driver and the 29-year-old passenger were pronounced dead at the scene. NHP Trooper Jason Buratczuk says both of them were not wearing seatbelts and it is believed that impairment was a factor.

Both of the victims are California residents.

The time of the crash is unknown as it was reported by a passerby after it had already occurred.
