3 hurt in crash that sends car into office building

Three people were injured when a car crashed into another vehicle and then into a building Monday night in the central valley, according to Las Vegas police.

It happened about 9:10 p.m. on the Pecos-McLeod Interconnect, at the southern intersection where Twain Avenue and Mojave Road come together. A 2015 Chevrolet Equinox was northbound on the interconnect when a 2010 Hyundai Sonata headed east on Mojave Road went through the intersection at the same time, a Metro news release said.

The Equinox and the Sonata collided, sending both cars into the northeast corner of the intersection. The Sonata continued up a curb, where it struck a traffic signal control box before it crashed into an office building at 3700 S. Pecos-McLeod, the release said.

Occupants of both vehicles were taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, police said. A 43-year-old woman, a passenger in the Sonata, was critically injured. The driver had injuries described as moderate.

The driver of the Chevrolet, a 23-year-old woman, had minor injuries.

This crash remains under investigation.
