According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the incident happened at about 2:57 PM. For reasons still under investigation, a 2013 Nissan Altima entered the road from a stop sign at Gilespie Street.
Then, a 2015 Dodge Ram pickup truck towing a utility trailer with an off-road vehicle, which was eastbound on Windmill Lane, struck the passenger side of the Altima. The impact of the crash pushed the Altima off of the road and to the corner of the intersection.
