Las Vegas, NV — On Sunday afternoon, pals and household of 56-year-old Ellen Gallucci gathered on the corner of the intersection exactly where she was killed for the duration of a 9-vehicle collision. The crash occurred on Friday following 32-year-old Kenneth Rankin reportedly sped his Dodge Challenger via a red light at Cheyenne and Jones.
Family members says Gallucci was a mother who also ran a mobile dog grooming company. Her dog, Scruffy, was also killed in the collision.
Pal Carolyn Maupin says, “She was the kindest, most generous [woman]. There is not 1 poor word that you can say about her, ever. No one could. No one.”
“She was my buddy. She had overcome so considerably and for this to have happened is just a shock to us all,” adds buddy Laura Cannon.
Rankin, his passenger and one more driver had been all reportedly taken to the hospital in serious condition. Rankin faces numerous drug-related charges. The investigation remains open.
