A 26-year-old Las Vegas woman died early Saturday after her pickup truck veered off West Charleston Boulevard and crashed into a streetlight pole, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.
At 6:30 a.m., the woman was driving a 1999 Toyota Tacoma heading west on Charleston just east of South Mohawk Street near the College of Southern Nevada when the pickup turned right off of the roadway and onto a sidewalk, police reported.
The driver’s side of the pickup then slammed into the light pole and the woman suffered critical injuries.
Ashley Fox died at University Medical Center from blunt force injuries, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.
The department’s collision investigation section is handling the inquiry into the crash, the 19th traffic-related fatality in its jurisdiction so far this year.
