Multiple-car crash closes intersection at Desert Inn and Sandhill

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Aug 15, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police are reporting that six vehicles were involved in a collision at East Desert Inn and Sandhill roads at about 2:18 p.m.

Seven people have been transported to the hospital. Police say that one of the victims was ejected from their vehicle and that person is in critical condition.

The chain-reaction crash was caused by a 23-year-old woman that was driving under the influence, according to police.

That woman is among the people who have been taken to the hospital. She will be charged once she has been released.

Desert Inn Road is currently closed in both directions between Boulder Highway and Sandhill. It will probably remain closed for quite some time.

Action News will update this story as soon as new information is received.
