LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County Coroner identified Andria Tracey, 42, as the woman killed in a fiery multi-crash on Las Vegas Boulevard the morning of Jan. 22. The manner of death was ruled accidental, caused by blunt injuries.
Metro Police said the fatal collision occurred just outside the South Premium Outlet Mall.
Las Vegas Boulevard was closed between Warm Springs and Robindale roads for seven hours. Police initially expected the road to reopen by 6 a.m. but it remained closed longer for the investigation.
According to police, witnesses said Tracey, who was driving a BMW, was driving south on Las Vegas Boulevard when she left the roadway and struck a guardrail. Police said she over-corrected, crossed three southbound lanes and went into northbound lanes where she struck a Toyata Highlander head-on, forcing it into another travel lane where it was struck by a Hyundai.
The driver of the Toyota, a 70-year-old man, was transported to the hospital with serious injuries. The 30-year-old male driver of the Hyundai suffered minor injuries, police said. Tracey was pronounced dead at the scene.
