A 60-year-old woman killed last week when her car rolled from a stop sign into oncoming traffic was identified Thursday by the Clark County coroner’s office as North Las Vegas resident Rosemary Cook.
North Las Vegas police said the collision occurred about 4 p.m. on April 14 near Craig Road and Ferrell Street.
Police said Cook was driving a Chevrolet Cavalier and had stopped on Ferrell. Her teenage son was in the car , and the two decided to trade places so he could drive. While they were doing so the car, still in gear, rolled into eastbound traffic on Craig, police said.
A 2006 Ford sedan hit the Cavalier, throwing the woman from the car. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
