LAS VEGAS -- A southern Nevada family torn apart by a tragedy is speaking out in hopes of sparing another family's suffering.
Nov. 25, 2011 was the day that changed the Billing family forever. Their 16-year-old daughter, Aleasha, was hit by a car while walking at the intersection of Lone Mountain Road and El Capitan Way.
Her parents believe the lack of lighting at the intersection contributed to Aleasha's death. A memorial for teen girl is about the only thing visible near the intersection. The darkness is a daily reminder to Mike and Carrie Billing about what happened to their daughter.
"This intersection, yes it is extremely dark. It is extremely busy. It is the only intersection without a street light," said Carrie Billing.
