NV Energy Driver Cited in Fatal NLV Crash

Prosecutors in North Las Vegas have filed misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter and other charges against the driver of a 40-ton utility truck that police say ran a red light and slammed into a sedan, killing the wife of a Nellis Air Force Base airman and injuring two other women in November.

North Las Vegas police Sgt. Tim Bedwell said Monday that 47-year-old Mark Parker is due March 3 in North Las Vegas Municipal Court on charges also including failure to obey a traffic-control device and failure to use due care. Parker could face up to 18 months in jail if convicted.

An NV Energy spokeswoman is declining comment about the company employee and the case.

Twenty-year-old Tayler Council died after the Nov. 4 crash at Centennial Parkway and Losee Road.
