California woman ID’d as victim in crash north of Las Vegas

Updated March 21, 2019 - 8:08 pm

A woman who died after a rollover crash on U.S. Highway 95 near Creech Air Force Base Wednesday evening has been identified.

Megan Campbell, 22, of Torrance, California, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.

Nevada Highway Patrol troopers were called about 5:05 p.m. to U.S. 95 near the base, about 45 miles northwest of Las Vegas, after receiving a report of a car that had turned over, Highway Patrol spokesman Jason Buratczuk said.

Witnesses said Campbell, driving the Toyota 4Runner, drifted left and rolled over after over correcting to the right, he said.

Two passengers were taken to University Medical Center with serious but survivable injuries, Buratczuk said.

Neither excessive speeds nor impairment were thought to be factors in the crash.
