LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say a California man is facing charges for driving under the influence for a car accident that injured himself and three others in Las Vegas.
Las Vegas Metropolitan Police say 24-year-old Nan Li of Baldwin Park, Calif., ran a red light while traveling west on Desert Inn Road around 6 a.m. Saturday.
Li’s car collided with a minivan headed south on Buffalo Drive, causing the van to tip over onto its side.
The van’s driver, 40-year-old Lee Ann Smith of Las Vegas, was hospitalized with severe injuries.
KSNV-TV reports two passengers in Li’s car, 25-year-old Jialin Yu of Baldwin Park, Calif., and 26-year-old Ricky Ziao of Las Vegas, sustained minor injuries.
Police say Li was booked into Clark County Detention Center after failing a field sobriety test.
