Passenger dies after family accident on Beltway

One person died after a two-vehicle crash on the 215 Beltway near South Decatur Boulevard Saturday night, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.

The call came in about 7 p.m. after a Toyota Camry traveling west on the Beltway rear-ended a Mercedes-Benz. The Mercedes’ driver pulled over to the right, while the Toyota continued down the Decatur offramp. The Toyota traveled to a parking lot near Wagon Trail Avenue where it caught fire.

The female front-seat passenger of the Toyota was pronounced dead at the scene. The male and female passengers were taken to University Medical Center in critical condition.

No injuries were reported for the passengers in the other vehicle.

The people in the two cars are family members, NHP trooper Loy Hixson said. They were on their way home.

The Beltway was closed for a short time, but Hixson said temporary closures may follow as the NHP continues to investigate.
