Fatal Two-Car Crash Leads to Death of Elderly Motorist The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police (LVMPD) have been investigating a two-car crash that involved the death of an elderly person. Just before 3:00 p.m. on October 18th, police answered to a two-car crash near west Flamingo Road and south Fort Apache Road. According the report, a 2019 Honda Accord was driving south through a private drive on the north side of west Flamingo Road and on the east side of south Fort Apache Road. A 2010 BMW 3 Series was headed west on west Flamingo Road and coming up on south Fort Apache Road. The Honda was entering west Flamingo Road and traveled into the path of the approaching BMW.
