One Las Vegas teenager died and several others were injured after a rollover accident Thursday in which police said alcohol and speed were factors.
Las Vegas police said the 17-year-old male driver of a 1990 GMC Jimmy was killed after he crashed into a desert area near Durango Drive and Moccasin Road in the northwest valley just after 6 p.m.
The victim was not identified pending notification of his family by the Clark County coroner’s office.
Seven others were injured, including Steven Abdel-Sayed, 18, of Las Vegas, Douglas Silber, 22, of Las Vegas and Richard Hall Jr., 19, of Cedar City, Utah. Four other teenagers also were injured but were not identified because they are juveniles. All suffered minor to moderate injuries.
The accident remains under investigation.
