LAS VEGAS – Three-vehicle crash involving a school bus in North Las Vegas on Tuesday afternoon led to the closure of Cheyenne Avenue near Englestad Street. The incident occurred at around 4:30 p.m. when a black Honda Civic heading eastbound on Cheyenne Avenue collided with a purple Kia Optima pulling out of a private drive and onto the same road.
According to police reports, the impact caused the Kia to rotate in an eastbound direction along Cheyenne Avenue. At the same time, a Clark County School District (CCSD) school bus was traveling westbound on Cheyenne Avenue towards Englestad Street. The bus driver witnessed the initial collision and was able to come to a stop, but the Kia continued to rotate and hit the front of the bus.
