An 18-year-old Henderson woman was killed in a suspected DUI crash on U.S. Highway 95 in Clark County this week.

At around 12:30 a.m. Monday, Taylor Madison was driving a black Hyundai Genesis southbound on U.S. 95 in the Boulder City area and failed to maintain her lane and drove into northbound lanes causing a collision with a red Nissan Versa, the Nevada Highway Patrol said
