Las Vegas officials ID woman who died in cab in fiery crash

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Clark County coroner's office has identified the passenger in a taxi who was killed in a fiery crash on the Las Vegas Strip.

Coroner's officials said Friday that 48-year-old Sandra Sutton-Wasmund died of multiple blunt force injuries. She was from Maple Valley, Wash.

She was among three people killed in the dramatic, early-morning crash and fire Thursday that started with someone in a Range Rover shooting at a Maserati. The Maserati then hit the cab that Sutton-Wasmund was riding in and burst into flames, triggering a multi-vehicle crash.

The medical examiner says the cab driver, Michael Boldon, also died of multiple blunt force injuries and the Maserati's driver died of a gunshot wound to the chest.

Police are searching for the gunman in a black Range Rover SUV who triggered the violence. They think an argument at the valet area of the upscale Aria resort-casino led to the shooting, but they haven't shared details.
