Las Vegas, NV – Tragedy struck on Tuesday morning as a multi-vehicle crash near Warm Springs and Tomiyasu Lane resulted in the loss of at least one life, according to the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD).

The incident, which occurred near Sunset Park, involved a 2016 Ford F150 truck and a 2016 Nissan NV200 van. Preliminary investigations conducted by Metro revealed that the Ford truck veered into the eastbound lanes of Warm Springs, colliding head-on with the Nissan van.

Gonzalez was subsequently taken into custody and booked into the Clark County Detention Center. He is now facing charges of DUI and failing to maintain his lane, as indicated by police and jail records.
