Nine killed in six-vehicle crash in the US

A six-vehicle crash has killed nine people and left one person in a critical condition in the US state of Nevada.

Police said a driver in a Dodge Challenger was speeding and also ran a red light before the collision on Saturday afternoon, which involved 15 people.

“We have not seen a mass casualty traffic collision like this before,” North Las Vegas Police spokesman Alexander Cuevas told reporters.

Cuevas said the driver “struck multiple vehicles, causing a chaotic event”.

Some of the vehicles struck were pushed into a vacant lot on the intersection.

The ages of the people who died ranged from young juveniles to middle-aged adults.

Two people were taken to a hospital where one died and the other was in critical condition, Cuevas said.

It was not yet known whether the driver of the Dodge was impaired.
