Neighbors in northwest valley neighborhood concerned about speeding after fatal crash

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- A fatal crash Monday night has caused some real concern in one northwest valley neighborhood. It happened near Tenaya and Lake Mead.

One man was killed, and three other people were injured.

Houses that line the four-lane road in the area say this is the first fatality they've seen, but not the first car crash. It makes it difficult for people like Jose Nunez to trust letting his kids outside to play.

"My house is right there, and we constantly hear the motors going all the time," Nunez said. "My kids play in this area, and they even go through here pretty fast, so it is worrisome."

Nunez says he and his neighbors have tried to put up cones to make drivers slow down on his street, but he feels there is nothing he can do about the cars on the major four-lane road.

Nunez says he feels people go a good 20-25 over the speed limit of 35 miles per hour... Read More

'Hope Cove': Local woman founds nonprofit to help valley families in need

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- As families across the valley struggle to stay afloat, many Southern Nevadans are stepping up to help. One of those people is a local woman who turned her living room full of donations into a charity.

"It's probably the single most fulfilling thing outside of my own motherhood that I've ever done," shared Tami Dukie, founder and CEO of Hope Cove.

She founded the nonprofit in May after seeing so many families struggle to feed and care for their babies.

"A teenage momma had her little baby with her, and her baby was wearing, hand to God, paper towel wrapped in cling wrap for a diaper," recounted Dukie. "I cried for 20 minutes after she left."

Initially, she used her living room as a central location to collect donations from across the valley. What started as a few boxes soon stacked to the ceiling. ... Read More

I-Team: 'It was our home,' bulldozers clear homeless camp featuring donated huts

NORTH LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- Dozens of people who lived in donated huts at a homeless encampment next to I-15 were met with bulldozers and police early Monday morning, the I-Team has learned.

The Nevada Department of Transportation owns the plot of land off Lake Mead near Losee. While the land is in North Las Vegas, part of it is also monitored by the City of Las Vegas.

Kady Johnson, who lived in the camp, said she woke up Monday to police telling her to leave.

“Wake up! This is the North Las Vegas Police Department,” Johnson said she heard officers yell around 6 a.m. “You need to pack up your stuff. You need to get up.”

What made the encampment unique was its 26 donated insulated huts from the group New Leaf Building Community. While Johnson slept in a tent and not a hut, she used the building as storage.

“I lost a lot of my clothes, my stuff, the food we had gathered up,” she shared... Read More
