The Clark County coroner’s office has identified the Las Vegas woman who died after the car she was in burst into flames following a crash early Friday morning in east Las Vegas.
Leyvi Guadalupe Pacheco Soto, 25, died at the scene after the 2012 Dodge Charger she was in clipped a pickup and slammed into a light pole around 3 a.m. near North Pecos Road and East Lake Mead Boulevard, according to Las Vegas police and the coroner’s office.
The driver of the car, a 26-year-old Las Vegas man, has not been identified yet. Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Ken Nogle told the Review-Journal on Friday that speed was “definitely a factor,” but that it remained unclear whether the driver of the Charger was impaired.
An online fundraiser for Guadalupe Pacheco Soto had raised almost $11,000 by Wednesday afternoon.
Guadalupe Pacheco Soto’s cause of death was ruled multiple blunt force injuries and motor vehicle crash, and the manner was an accident, the coroner’s office said.
