Five people were injured, including one critical injury, after a multiple vehicle crash in the northeast Las Vegas valley on the morning of March 13th.
According to officials, the crash was reported around 4:00 a.m. on the northbound side of I-15 at the Las Vegas Speedway exit.
Based on the photos released by Nevada Highway Patrol, at least three vehicles were involved in the crash including a white sedan and a dark-colored car, both suffering apparent front-end damage.
According to Trooper Travis Smaka with the Nevada Highway Patrol, authorities believe the white sedan was traveling in the wrong direction on the northbound side of the road when it collided with the dark-colored car.
A semi-truck tried to brake and avoid being a part of the collision but unfortunately clipped the dark-colored car from behind.
Five people were injured in the crash, including the driver of the white sedan who was said to be in critical condition. Officials are awaiting the results of toxicology reports before determining if impairment was a factor in the crash.
