The crash was reported around 7:40 p.m. near Tropicana Avenue and Koval Lane.

An investigation revealed that the driver of a Mercedes-Benz E320 turned left in front of a Nissan Altima. The Nissan struck the Mercedes-Benz on the passenger side, rotated clockwise, then was impacted on the driver's side by a Toyota Camry.

The front seat passenger of the Mercedes-Benz, 30-year-old Taysha Binns, was taken to the hospital where she later died from her injuries. The driver of the Mercedes-Benz remained at the scene and did not show signs of impairment.

Tropicana Avenue was closed in both directions between Koval Lane and Paradise Road for much of the night.
