LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – The Clark County district attorney’s office has charged a 22-year-old woman with involuntary manslaughter after a rollover crash killed one child and injured five others.
Wendy Carrion, who was booked this morning into the Clark County Detention Center, also faces charges of child abuse, neglect or endangerment with substantial bodily harm; failure to maintain a travel lane; driving without a valid license; safety belt or shoulder harness requirements for a child; and failure to use a restraining device for a child.
The accident occurred just after 8 a.m. July 2 on northbound Interstate 15 just north of the Spaghetti Bowl. A Nevada Highway Patrol report says Carrion overcorrected near the D Street off-ramp, causing the rollover.
Two of the children in the Ford SUV were unrestrained; one, Gabriela Casias, 9, died from her injuries.
