Utah Driver Critically Injured In Falcon Ridge Wreck NHP ( Nevada Highway Patrol) Claims Vehicles Drag Racing, One Arrested. A Utah man was critically injured on Sunday night during a wreck on Falcon Ridge Parkway in Mesquite. Initial reports from the Mesquite Police Department indicated that the individual had died later in the evening. However, according to the victim’s mother, the young man is clinging to life in a Las Vegas hospital. “He’s a good kid,” said Stacy Nelson, mother of Timothy Maas, the man who was driving the BMW on Falcon Ridge Parkway around 9:30 p.m. “There was no alcohol or drugs found in his system.”
Nelson was told by friends who were on the scene of the accident that no drag racing was involved. “He was taking the car for a test drive, and opened it up,” Nelson said on Tuesday morning. However, the Nevada Highway Patrol has confirmed that the vehicles appeared to be drag racing on Falcon Ridge Parkway. The driver of the second vehicle is currently in the Clark County Jail on charges involving the wreck. According to witnesses, the 21-year-old driver of the BMW lost control and struck a curb, causing the vehicle to roll several times.
The second vehicle, reportedly a 2005 Dodge Neon, veered right and struck another curb, causing it to flip as well. According to NHP, the vehicles did not hit each other.
When the BMW rolled over, Maas was thrown from the vehicle. According to his mother, he sustained severe head injuries, broken ribs, and a punctured lung, and was Life-Flighted to Las Vegas. Now he is fighting for his life, with bleeding in his brain. “He’s on four different prayer lists right now,” Nelson said. The passenger in the BMW, James Austin, received minor injuries.
Both men were from Utah. According to one police officer, departments often see an uptick in occurrences of illegal street drag racing after the release of movies which glorify the event.
The officer pointed out that the fourth installment of “The Fast and Furious” hit theatres on Friday, just two days before the accident. And my Twin Sister Jacqueline dosen't know what to really do about it So maybe you guys can help me give her some advice, just please Pray for him his name is Timothy Maas Thank You.
