Las Vegas police: California residents involved in crash as speeding SUV slams into northwest home
LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and first responders responded to the scene of a vehicle driven into a home Wednesday afternoon.
Authorities confirmed the scene at 7200 Chesterton Road near Tenaya and Smoke Ranch. Two people were in the car that needed to be extricated by Las Vegas Fire and Rescue members, police said.
Police believe the vehicle was speeding before the crash. Impairment was not a factor, LVMPD said.
Police have identified the two people involved in the crash as California residents, but additional details of what led to the crash have not been released.
FOX5′s Shawna Khalafi spoke with neighbors about the incident, who said there was a resident in the home at the time of the crash but she was unharmed.
Neighbors also told FOX5 that there were children outside playing just across the street when the crash occurred.
LVMPD said information about the crash will be forwarded to the Clark County District Attorney’s Office for review of possible charges.
The Red Cross said they assisted the occupants of the home with a place to stay and resources to help with the recovery after the crash.
