Las Vegas (KTNV) —Las Vegas police say Governor Steve Sisolak was unable to give up his right of way at a crossroads in the south of the valley over the weekend and was responsible for the subsequent crash.
Both drivers were quoted by the police. Other drivers involved were quoted for speeding.
The crash occurred at the intersection of West Russell Road and South Rainbow Boulevard after 12:30 pm on Sunday.
According to reports of the crash from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, Sisolak was heading south on the rainbow and the other drivers were heading north.
According to reports, Sisorak told officers that he had stopped completely at the intersection and then pulled back a little to see if it was clear that he would turn left. He said he pulled a little forward because the car behind him honked. At that time, he was attacked by a vehicle bound for the north, he told police.
At that intersection, there is a sign that says “Surrender when the yellow arrow is flashing.”
Another driver told police that he approached the intersection at a green light and turned yellow when he entered the intersection. She told police that she speculated that the first driver, Sisorak, was driving in front of her and was traveling at 45 mph at the time of the crash.
Both the north and south lanes have a speed limit of 45 mph.
Due to the degree of damage, both vehicles had to be towed from the scene. According to the report, Sisolak’s car turned into a business landscape in the northeast corner of the intersection.
Both drivers were taken to the hospital for checkout and were reported to have been slightly injured by authorities.
According to police, the second driver traveled at 62 mph just before the collision and slowed down to 43 mph at the time of the collision, according to vehicle computer data. The Sisolak vehicle was traveling at 15 mph at the moment of the collision.
Neither driver showed signs of impairment, police said.
The report shows that the Nevada Highway Patrol has passed an outdoor drinking test on a second driver. The report does not mention whether Sisolak took the same test.
