One Person Critically Injured in Suspected DUI Crash in Las Vegas One person was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries after a crash near the UNLV campus late Tuesday night, police say. The collision took place around 11:36 p.m. at Tropicana Avenue and Maryland Parkway, as reported from Lt. David Gordon with the Las Vegas Metro Police Department. Police said they believe a Toyota Corolla and a Ford F-150 were involved in a crash. While the drivers were inspecting the damage from the collision, a Toyota Camry rear-ended the Ford 1-50.
