Sierra Wave Media received this from Bishop CHP:

“On 12/30/19 at approximately 4:50 PM, Takumi Sagawa of Hokkaido, Japan, was driving a Kia Optima westbound on SR-190, east of Mesquite Dunes Parking Lot Entrance at approximately 50 MPH. At the same time, Xiaomin Deng of Sammamish, WA, was driving a Chevrolet Malibu eastbound on SR-190 at approximately 55 MPH. For an unknown reason, Mr. Sagawa allowed his vehicle to cross the double yellow lines, entering the eastbound lane directly into the path of Mr. Deng’s vehicle. Mr. Deng attempted to avoid the collision; however, the front of the Kia struck the front of the Malibu in a head-on collision. Five parties were injured in the collision with injuries varying from moderate to major. All parties were transported to UMC Las Vegas.”
