Henderson Police Officer Fired After Destroying Vehicle

HENDERSON, Nev. -- An officer with Henderson Police Department's SWAT unit was fired Monday for "serious policy violations" after his police vehicle was totally destroyed.

Officer Justin Simo's police vehicle caught fire on Feb. 28. According to a statement released by Henderson Police Chief Patrick Moers, the fire resulted from serious policy violations.

A witness told police, the tire blew out on the vehicle and the officer continued to drive for more than a mile causing the sparks from the tire rim to catch the SUV on fire.

Driving You Crazy: Sinkhole on Roy Horn Way

LAS VEGAS - Drivers are concerned about a sinkhole that has developed on Roy Horn Way near Decatur Boulevard. If a driver veers right, he or she will run right into the sinkhole.

It's happened before. In summer 2010, a woman's car landed in six-foot-wide sinkhole at Desert Inn Road and Nellis Boulevard. What was a solid road became a huge sinkhole, due to a pipe that was leaking 18 feet below ground.

The sinkhole on Roy Horn Way stretches a few feet underground. Unlike potholes which start above ground, sinkholes start below ground. Erosion occurs, water pools and the ground below the road becomes compromised and can suddenly collapse.

Crews blocked the Roy Horn Way sinkhole with just a few rocks – which are not enough to prevent drivers from rolling into it.

One Dead in Crash Near Mountain Springs

MOUNTAIN SPRINGS -- One person was killed in a three-vehicle crash near Mountain Springs Sunday evening.

Nevada Highway Patrol confirms a car struck a motorcycle on State Route 160, just outside of Mountain Springs. A separate car then also crashed into the bike.

Both northbound and southbound lanes in the area were shut down for a time so the helicopter could land.

None of the five people in the second car were injured.

It's not yet clear who was at fault.
