Fatal car accident

A 42-year-old woman died and two teens suffered critical injuries Sunday in a three-vehicle collision in northwest Las Vegas.

Metro Police responded about 11 a.m. to the crash at Tropical Parkway and Durango Drive.

Witness statements and evidence indicate a Nissan pickup truck was traveling south on Durango, crossing Tropical, when it collided with a Ford Mustang, which was headed east on Tropical, police said.

The impact caused the Mustang to spin into a Pontiac sedan in the right turn lane on Durango, police said.

The woman driving the Mustang was pronounced dead at the scene. Two passengers in the Mustang, ages 18 and 16, were transported to University Medical Center with severe injuries, police said.
