Passenger killed in van rollover crash ID'd

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Authorities say a 48-year-old Las Vegas woman died when the van she was riding in lost control and flipped late Sunday night on an onramp heading west on Interstate 215.

Nevada Highway Patrol troopers said the van had been carrying 10 people on their way home from a trip to California when the crash occurred shortly after 9 p.m. Sunday where Interstates 215 and 15 meet near Las Vegas. Troopers say the van's driver was driving too fast during the rainy conditions and lost control of the vehicle.

Authorities say Sheila Williams had been sitting in the second row behind the driver and wearing her seatbelt. She died at the scene.

Trooper Chelsea Stuenkel says the other passengers including the driver were taken to UMC hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
