At approximately 1:50 p.m. Thursday, witnesses reported a case of suspected road rage involving two cars entering IR 215 in Las Vegas.

The suspect is described as a white female with blond hair driving a gray or black four-door passenger car. The car toward which she was reportedly driving aggressively was a blue Toyota Scion.

The suspect struck the Scion on eastbound IR 215 just north of the US 95 ramps. The incident ended up causing a three-car crash involving the Toyota, a gray Honda Accord and a blue Ford Mustang.

“The suspect vehicle never stopped at the scene and was last seen eastbound on the IR 215,” according to a news release by Nevada Highway Patrol.

Two people involved in the crash were transported to the hospital with serious but non life-threatening injuries.
