LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A suspected DUI multi-vehicle crash in the southwest Las Vegas valley left one person hospitalized, according to Metro police.
On Tuesday around 6:50 a.m., officers responded to a crash on South Hualapai Way north of West Diablo Drive.
Evidence at the scene and witness statements showed that a Honda Pilot and a Chevrolet Colorado were driving northbound on Hualapai.
The crash occurred when a Tesla was driving the wrong way on Hualapai at a high rate of speed and crashed into the rear of the Chevrolet. The Tesla then continued traveling southbound in the northbound lanes and crashed into the rear of the Honda.
The Tesla then spun out and crashed into several trees and a light pole before coming to a stop.
The driver of the Tesla was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. The occupants of the other cars sustained injuries but were not taken to the hospital.
The driver of the Tesla displayed signs of impairment and was “handled accordingly,” according to Metro police.
