Woman and 2 Children Killed in Head-on Crash

LAS VEGAS - Nevada Highway Patrol confirms that a woman and two kids were three of the victims killed in a fiery crash Sunday night on US 95, south of Mile Marker 28.

The crash involved two vehicles and happened around 10:40 p.m. NHP reports the driver of a maroon Buick sedan, possibly a Park Avenue, was traveling northbound in the southbound lane of US 95. The Buick struck the Toyota van that the woman and two children were in, head-on, causing both vehicles to burst into flames.

The driver of the Buick was also pronounced dead at the crash scene.

According to NHP, the extensive fire damage is making it more difficult to identify the deceased and release further vehicle information.
