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. That caused the Ford to move forward which briefly pinned the driver of the Corolla, a 55-year-old Las Vegas resident. 

The man was rushed to the Sunrise Hospital with critical injuries. 

The driver of the Camry, was taken to UMC to receive treatment for minor injuries. The driver of the Ford pickup reported no injuries and did not show any signs of impairment. 

The Camry driver showed signs of impairment and was booked into Clark County Detention Center, according to LVMPD. She faces a charge of DUI resulting in substantial bodily harm, among other counts, per jail records.
