North Las Vegas, Nevada (AP) —Nevada police said six vehicles collided, killing nine and putting one in danger.
A North Las Vegas police spokesman, Alexander Quevas, said at a news conference that the Dodge Challenger driver also emitted a red light before the collision on Saturday afternoon.
“We haven’t seen any traffic accidents with such a large number of casualties so far,” Cuevas said in a briefing around 11:00 pm local time.
The crash was reported at 3 pm, Cuevas said, after the driver “attacked multiple vehicles and caused a chaotic event.” Some of the vehicles that collided were pushed into a vacant lot at the intersection.
The ages of those who died ranged from young boys to middle-aged adults. According to Quevas, two were taken to the hospital, one died and the other was in serious condition.
It was not yet known if the Dodge driver had a disability.
