Four injured in single-vehicle crash

Four people were taken to the hospital after the car they were riding in smashed into a concrete barrier then careened across three lanes of traffic.

Around 10:50 a.m., the 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser was traveling north on North Eastern Avenue and approaching Valley Street when the driver failed to negotiate the curve of the roadway, Metro Police said.

The car began to exit the road to the right before the right side of the vehicle hit a short, temporary cement barrier known as a jersey wall, police said. The impact deflected the car across three traffic lanes toward the median, where the car rolled over.

Police said one of the unrestrained occupants was ejected before the vehicle came to rest at the median.

All four of the occupants were transported to University Medical Center, police said. The driver, a 39-year –old woman and Henderson resident had minor injuries. Another woman, 32, also from Henderson suffered serious injuries. Two 26-year-old Las Vegas men were also in the car. One was transported in critical condition while the other suffered serious injuries.

The collision is still under investigation.
