LAS VEGAS (FOX5) – Henderson Police and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department responded to a fatal crash involving four vehicles near Eastern Avenue and Windmill Parkway on Saturday evening. 

The crash happened around 7 p.m. on Dec. 4 at Eastern Avenue and Bluegrass Lane.

According to police, a silver Lexus sedan was traveling northbound on Eastern when a red Toyota sedan failed to stop at a stop sign. The Toyota and Lexus collided with each other and struck two other vehicles.

The driver of the Lexus was later identified as Jeta Jackson, 41, according to the Clark County Coroner's office.

A driver from a third vehicle was taken to the hospital, but was expected to recover, according to police.

Dustin Porter, 30, was behind the wheel of the Toyota sedan and was treated for non-life threatening injuries at the hospital. Porter was taken into custody by LVMPD and faces charges of DUI resulting in death and failure to obey at a controlled intersection.

A police report revealed that porter smelled of alcohol and had evidence of a marijuana in his car. The report said Porter has watery and glossy vision and failed all field sobriety tests at the scene. 

The report said that Porter didn't remember what happened at the time of the crash, but while at the hospital he told police he remembered someone saying there was a stop sign.

Police said speed and impairment are considered factors in this crash.

The family of Jeta Jackson has created a GoFundMe to help with expenses.

The crash was the eighth traffic-related fatality for 2021. 

Anyone with information in this case is urged to call the Henderson Police Department at 702-267-4911, 3-1-1, or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or visit Crime Stoppers website. Tips directly leading to a felony arrest or an indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may result in a cash reward.

EDITOR'S NOTE:

A previous version of this story incorrectly identified the driver of the Lexas as 29-year-old Bruno Monroy. This story was corrected on Dec. 8 to reflect the correct identification is that of Jeta Jackson, according to the Clark County Coroner's office.
