Woman dies after crashing into parked car in central Las Vegas

A 38-year-old woman died Tuesday morning after she crashed into a parked car in the central valley, Las Vegas police said.

The crash happened about 9:40 a.m. in a neighborhood near U.S. Highway 95 and South Decatur Boulevard, according to a Metropolitan Police Department release.

She was driving a 1988 Honda Civic north on Michael Way, north of Banjo Street, when it veered into a parked, unoccupied 1999 Chevrolet Suburban in a parking lane.

The Suburban’s driver was nearby and called for medical help for the Honda driver, who wasn’t wearing a seat belt. She died at a hospital.

The Clark County coroner’s office will release the 38-year-old woman’s identity, as well as determine her cause and manner of death.
