METRO: DUI crash shuts down Flamingo & El Capitan intersection

LAS VEGAS - Metro Police investigated an three-vehicle crash they say was the result of drunk driving near Flamingo Road and El Capitan Way Tuesday morning.

The crash happened just after 4 a.m.

Metro Police said a 2003 Mercedes 4-door crashed into a 2007 Toyota pickup. The Mercedes caught fire after the collision. The Toyota crashed into a power box, causing it to disable the traffic signals at the intersection and street lights.

A 2001 Chevrolet coupe was also hit in the collision, but only had minor damage.


The three drivers in each vehicle did not suffer from any serious injuries.

Police believe the driver of the Mercedes was impaired at the time of the crash.

Traffic engineers and NV Energy replaced the power box to restore power at the intersection.
