a fuel truck in southeast Las
Vegas.
“He had everything going
for him,” classmate and friend
Danielle Carter said Monday
through her tears at the scene.
Michael Hoggard, a straight
A student and a fullback on
the soccer team, died at the
scene of the 1:45 p.m. accident
when he lost control of his
northbound dark blue Mustang
and slammed into a southbound
Rebel Oil Co. tanker on
i Mountain Vista Street, Metro
Police Sgt. Steve Tuggle said.
Police said Hoggard, whose
seat belt had to be cut away,
died on impact, his car crushed
beneath the tanker’s front
wheels and his body trapped
in the wreckage.
The youth had just left school
and was weaving in and out of
traffic above the 45 mph speed
limit when the Mustang crested
the hill at Patrick Lane and flew
over the median sideways into
the truck, Tuggle said.
Police closed the road for
about two blocks and called
a county hazardous materials
unit to clean up oil spilled from
the car.
The truck driver, who would
not provide his name as he
stood near the wreck with a
stricken look on his face, was
not injured, authorities said.
Hoggard was a popular youth
who was called “a pleasure to
be around” by his soccer coach,
Vince Hart.
“He would do anything,
could play any position. He was
an all-American kid for sure,”
said Hart, who said he learned
of the accident from another
athlete’s parent while on the
school’s practice field.
Several of the youth’s
friends, who came upon the
accident just seconds after it
occurred, huddled together at
i the scene, hugging and crying.
