Crash location

The Clark County Coroner’s Office has identified a woman killed in a collision at the interchange of U.S. 95 and U.S. 93 near Boulder City on Saturday as 79-year-old Sarah Huravitch, of Earp, Calif.

A Chevrolet Tahoe, which was southbound on U.S. 93, failed to yield at a stop sign at the interchange ramp and collided with a Cadillac Escalade about 7:30 a.m., authorities said. The Escalade was northbound on U.S. 95 approaching the interchange at the time of the collision.

Huravitch was a passenger in the Escalade, troopers said. The coroner’s office said she died of multiple blunt force trauma as a result of the collision. Her death was ruled an accident.

Both drivers and two 8-year-old girls were also taken to a hospital, troopers said.
