High Speed Crash Kills One-Year-Old and Hospitalizes Two More People A one-year-old boy died and two people were transported to the hospital after a crash in the West Valley on Sunday, police said. The crash occurred at 7:17 p.m. at Rampart and Lake Mead Boulevards. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said a grey 2020 Hyundai Sonata was traveling northbound on Rampart at high speed. The crash happened after a 2011 Nissan Sentra made a right-hand turn onto Rampart from Lake Mead. The Hyundai struck the left side of the Nissan, said LVMPD. According to police, the Hyundai lost control and continued northeast on Rampart before running into a marquee sign. This resulted in the severance of the right side of the vehicle. Two people were taken to a hospital in unknown condition. A one-year-old boy who was in the Hyundai was pronounced dead at the scene.  The driver was identified as 23-year-old Lauren Prescia. Speed and impairment were considered factors in the crash, said LVMPD. The boy's death marks the fiftieth traffic-related fatality in LVMPD's jurisdiction in 2020.
