According to the authorities, this single-vehicle Las Vegas car accident occurred on Monday morning at just before 9 a.m. A 19-year-old male was driving his Toyota sedan in a northbound direction on McLeod Drive just south of Palora Avenue when, for some reason, the vehicle veered off of the roadway. As a result, the Toyota jumped the sidewalk next to the road and crashed violently into a residential retaining wall. An unidentified teen-aged female passenger who was in the vehicle was killed as a result of the crash, and police are still investigating the incident.
