LAS VEGAS (AP) - Family members say the taxi driver killed in a fiery crash on the Las Vegas Strip was a father and grandfather with a passion for fast cars.
Carolyn Jean Trimble says her younger brother, 62-year-old Michael Boldon, was born and raised in Michigan and had been driving taxis since he moved to Las Vegas about 1 1/2 years ago.
She says he loved watching car races and drove a Mercedes when he wasn't in a cab.
Trimble identified Boldon as one of three people killed in the dramatic, early-morning crash and fire Thursday that started with someone in a Range Rover shooting at a Maserati.
The Maserati then hit Boldon's cab, which burst into flames, killing him and his passenger and triggering a multi-vehicle crash. The Maserati driver also died.
