A number of serious accidents, including one that took a middle-school student's life, is prompting community leaders to take action.
State Assemblyman James Healey and State Senator Justin Jones will host a meeting about the safety of Blue Diamond Road between 6:30 and 8 p.m. Saturday at Reedom Elementary School, 10025 Rumrill Street.
The legislators will be joined by County Commissioner Susan Brager, the director of the Nevada Department of Transportation and an official with Clark County Public Works.
Leaders will talk with residents about road and traffic safety along the increasingly busy road.
In November, three teenage girls were hit crossing Blue Diamond Road at Cimarron Road. One of the girls died. Just a few days later, while the girl's friends and family gather for a vigil for her, another teenager was seriously hurt in a three-car pile up.
