JSN - LAUGHLIN ACCIDENT (1)A spectacular traffic accident Tuesday morning in Laughlin caused only minor injuries to one of the passengers involved. It happened shortly before 8 a.m., Nevada time, on Bruce Woodbury Drive, near the entrance to the old Mohave Generating Station.  Investigators with Las Vegas Metro in Laughlin say that the driver of a 2003 Hyundai Sonata, Johnny Scott, 64, of Laughlin, was stopped on the south-side shoulder of Bruce Woodbury Dr when he decided to make a U-turn. As he did, he turned in front of an eastbound 2015 Subaru Crosstrek. The collision caused the Subaru to slide sideways along the roadway, ripping the two drivers side tires to be ripped off their rims. At that point, according to Metro Lt. John Healy, the Subaru became airborne, rolling several times in the air. The left front side of the vehicle struck the dirt shoulder and rolled again until it came to rest against the fence of the former power plant. The driver of the Subaru, a 67-year old Laughlin resident was uninjured. Her 77-year old passenger was treated at the scene by Clark County Fire Department paramedics. Scott was also not injured during the accident. Investigators later determined that Scott’s Nevada driver’s license had been suspended. He was cited for driving on a suspended license and for making an unsafe turning movement.
