Witnesses say a Mercury sedan traveling southbound on Decatur ran a red light and collided with a Honda sedan traveling westbound on Pennwood. Police say both drivers showed signs of impairment and speed appears to be a factor. The woman driving the Honda was described as having “extremely life-threatening” injuries.
2. Las Vegas home prices were up last month from 2016 despite flat sales and sliding inventory. The number of available single-family homes was down 33 percent from 2016 while the median sales price of $261,150 was up 8.8 percent from the same period. Greater Las Vegas Association of Realtors said in a news release that demand is exceeding the shrinking supply of available homes.
3. An Army staff sergeant came to Vegas to surprise his stepfather.
