A serious minibus accident occurred during the night in the Las Vegas area involving young French nationals from Marseille and Seine-et-Marne, who were part of a tour group.

Sadly, this accident caused the death of two teens and injured four others, one seriously. The driver is also injured.

A crisis unit was immediately activated at the Quai d’Orsay. France’s consul-general in Los Angeles is currently with the victims. All the families were informed immediately.

I want to send the victims’ families and loved ones my heartfelt condolences and deep sympathy./.
