A 36-year-old woman has died of injuries from a multiple vehicle crash in late August, Las Vegas police said.

The crash happened about 8:20 a.m. Aug. 20 at Rancho Drive and Jones Boulevard, the Metropolitan Police Department said. Investigators believe a 20-year-old man driving a 2020 Dodge Charger southbound on Rancho failed to stop for a red light, and struck a 2016 Hyundai Elantra.

The Hyundai then struck a 2004 Lincoln Navigator, which in turn struck a 2012 Ford Fusion, police said.

The Dodge’s driver and the occupants of the Hyundai were taken to University Medical Center with injuries “ranging from minor to critical,” according to a police statement at the time.

The driver of the Hyundai, Marie Leatham-Davis, 36, of Las Vegas, died Sept. 7 from blunt force head trauma sustained in the crash, according to the Clark County coroner’s office. A 65-year-old passenger in Leatham-Davis’ car was seriously injured.

None of the drivers involved in the crash showed signs of impairment, police said.

Leatham-Davis’ death marks the 95th traffic-related fatality investigated by Metro this year.
