LAS VEGAS (AP) — A gunfight between a Maserati and an SUV on the Las Vegas Strip caused a fiery crash involving a taxi that burst into flames, leaving three people dead and at least three injured.
Police say the Maserati driver, the taxi driver and a passenger in the cab were killed. The SUV got away.
In all, five vehicles were involved in the dramatic crash around 4:30 a.m. Thursday at Flamingo and Las Vegas boulevards, a wide intersection surrounded by some of the most famous casinos on the Strip, including the Bellagio, Caesars Palace and the Paris.
Sgt. John Sheahan said it started with people in the Maserati and the SUV exchanging gunfire before the high-end sports car hit the taxi.
Several people were taken to the hospital, including a passenger from the Maserati.
