Two people killed in crash on North Las Vegas street

Two people, including a teenage girl, were killed in a wreck in North Las Vegas about 2 p.m. Saturday, authorities said.

The two victims were passengers in a 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo heading south on Camino Al Norte, near Craig Road, when the driver, Daniel Wells, 63, of North Las Vegas, attempted to turn left into a driveway and was struck by a northbound 2003 Dodge 2500 pickup, North Las Vegas police said. The pickup was driven by Nathan Blazvick, of Las Vegas.

The teenage girl, seated in the front passenger-side seat, and a woman in the rear passenger-side seat of the Monte Carlo were pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Their identities were withheld by police.

Wells and a third woman, seated in the rear driver-side seat, were taken to University Medical Center with injuries.

Police were testing blood samples from both drivers to determine whether alcohol or drugs were a factor in the collision.

No charges were immediately filed. The investigation into the collision will continue, police said.

Police are asking anyone who may have witnessed the crash to call the lead investigator at 633-1017, ext. 5051 or Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
