The Clark County coroner’s office has identified a 73-year-old woman who died Friday afternoon in a crash in the northeast Las Vegas Valley.
Lona Richards, from North Las Vegas, was a passenger in a 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche that was driving on Lamb Boulevard north of Las Vegas Boulevard North about 3:40 p.m. on Friday when it broadsided a 1998 Nissan Sentra as it was turning into a private driveway, police said.
Richards was not wearing a seat belt, the release said.
Richards and the male driver of the Nissan were taken to University Medical Center, where she died. The 54-year-old man had serious injuries.
Neither of the drivers appeared impaired, police said.
Richards’ death marks the 60th traffic fatality investigated by Metro this year.
