Officials identified 37-year-old Erica Marie Morrell who died after a wrong-way crash on I-15 (Las Vegas, NV)

The Clark County Coroner’s Office identified 37-year-old Erica Marie Morrell, of Henderson, as the woman who lost her life following a wrong-way crash Monday night that killed 3 others on I-15 south of the Las Vegas Valley.

As per the initial information, the multi-vehicle pile-up was reported at around 6 p.m. on Jan. 10 on I-15 southbound near mile marker 20, south of Sloan. The preliminary reports showed that a red Cadillac was driving northbound in the far left southbound lane when it collided with a Toyota pick-up truck head on.

The truck had caught fire due to the impact, claiming the lives of the three people inside. The driver of the Cadillac, only identified on Monday night as a woman, was also declared dead at the scene. The preliminary evidence suggested that the woman was impaired.

When the crash took place, a semi-truck veered to avoid it, as did a silver Kia, a silver Volvo and a red truck. The drivers in both silver cars were transported to University Medical Center with unspecified injuries, but were stable. The red truck driver was unharmed, as was the semi driver.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office identified one of the deceased as Erica Marie Morrell, 37, from Henderson. Morrell died from blunt trauma and her death was ruled an accident. Drivers were forced to exit at Sloan and use Las Vegas Boulevard as a detour if going south. Traffic congestion was seen into the valley at St. Rose Parkway. No other details are available.

An investigation is continuing.
