complete loss. damage is estimated at 100- thousand dollars. the cause is still under investigation. here at action news we wantto clarify an earlier report on the victim of a terrible accident near rainbow and spring mountain earlier this week. we mistakenly identified her as victoria sandoval. the suspected drunk driver in this case is 33 year old victor sandoval. the name of the victim has not been identifed. now to a story that really demonstrates the power of social media. a family's truck was stolen out of their driveway----and within three hours -- they had it back. action news reporter gina lazara talked to the family. she is live in the studio with this crazy story. gina?! yasmeen --- steve and jamielynn ritchie were trying to bring game..... but there was one issue. "where's my truck? sometimes i park in the street so we looked in the street and it was not there. and i was like great - somebody stole my truck." the couple was upset but knew they made a mistake by keeping their keys inside their truck
8:06 pm
so they took the problem to facebook --- hoping for the best but expecting the worst. and within just three hours -- a friend of a friend spotted the truck inside the red rock parking garage. "part of me is just like it's just a truck. it's not like anyone got hurt or whatever. but it's nice to have it back. it's just kind of one of those - hey the good guys win in the end!" while the friend of the friend was waiting for police to come -- they watched four teens come out of the casino and hop into the truck. this led to a chase that ended in an arrest at gunpoint with metro officers. coming up on action news at 11 -- we will have pictures of that happening. reporting live in the studio gina lazara channel 13 action news. right now southern nevada's newest medical marijuana dispensary is open for business!

thousand women? those who did not get enough sleep were more likely to end up developing type 2 diabetes - a condition often that means higher risk of heart disease, stroke, and early death. compared to women with normal sleep, those with multiple sleep problems were up to four times as likely to develop diabetes. these connections were there? even when the researchers took other risk factors into account -- like obesity, high blood pressure and depression. we don't know why this connection might exist? but you don't need to wait for more research to get better sleep. the trick is making sleep a priority, not an afterthought. bedtime routine, darkness, and staying off the electronic devices right before bed all can help! and if that doesn't work, a good night's rest is worth talking to your doctor about. with this medical minute, i'm dr. timothy johnson. nevada health link's final health fair took place earlier today.
