An 83-year-old woman was killed when a pickup truck slammed into the side of her car in Boulder City on Saturday evening.
Boulder City police said the woman, Frances Johnson of Boulder City, was the passenger in a 2002 Honda Civic driven by her husband, 88-year-old Andrew Jacobson.
The car was heading south on U.S. Highway 93 when it began to make a left turn onto Lake Mountain Drive at 5:06 p.m. A 1994 Ford pickup that was traveling north on the highway struck the passenger side of the Honda, according to police.
Jacobson was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center with critical injuries. His wife was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the truck, 35-year-old Jesus Romero of Las Vegas, and his passengers were not injured. Romero was arrested on a charge of driving under the influence of drugs, police said.
