Police say two people were killed and a third injured when two cars collided at Boulder Highway and Desert Inn Road.
Authorities say the crash happened Saturday around 10:40 p.m. Witnesses say a Dodge Dart was making a left turn from a northbound lane of Boulder Highway when a Ford 500 traveling southbound struck it on the passenger side.
The 81-year-old female driver of the Dodge and an 83-year-old male passenger, both of Las Vegas, were pronounced dead at Sunrise Hospital. They were identified as Isidra Jayubo and Mario Gomez Jayubo, respectively. They both died of blunt force trauma from the crash.
The driver of the Ford, 45-year-old Keith Prassas, of Bullhead City, Arizona, was hospitalized with serious injuries.
The crash is still under investigation.
These were the fifth and sixth traffic-related deaths in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department jurisdiction in 2016.
