Wreck on U.S. 95 kills teen

A 16-year-old Las Vegas girl died Wednesday morning after a car flipped on U.S. Highway 95, the Highway Patrol said.

Zoey Roanoke was in the back seat of a Scion sedan heading south near Durango Drive when it drifted off the shoulder, veered back across the highway and rolled into the median about 5:35 a.m., the patrol said.

Roanoke, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the car. She died several hours later at University Medical Center.

Another back-seat passenger, a 17-year-old boy, also was not wearing a seat belt and was thrown from the car, the patrol said. The 18-year-old woman who was driving and a 17-year-old girl in the passenger seat were both buckled up.

All three were taken to University Medical Center. Their conditions were unavailable.
