Car Crash Mangles ‘Welcome to Downtown’ Las Vegas Sign

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A car crash has destroyed an iconic “Welcome to Fabulous Downtown Las Vegas” sign.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal posted on Facebook video taken by a bystander Sunday morning that shows a crashed pickup truck and the decimated sign.

In the video, the truck’s rear is stuck on top of a large rock.

The wreckage of both car and sign were hauled away by 10 a.m.

The sign, located at 4th Street and Las Vegas Boulevard, is less recognized than the “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas” landmark sign.

The crash remains under investigation.

The downtown sign has been on display since 2002.
