SUV crashes into Stratosphere resort


No one was injured when a driver, who was possibly high on drugs, crashed through a wall of the Stratosphere resort early Friday morning.

The red SUV was apparently headed westbound on E. St. Louis Ave, when the driver failed to stop at the intersection with Las Vegas Blvd. The SUV plowed into the building, breaking through a wall that leads to the casino’s buffet.

Metro Lt. Josh Martinez said the driver was the only person in the vehicle, and that the driver was under the influence of a narcotic.  The driver was arrested at the scene.  No pedestrians, nor anyone inside the resort were hurt.
