One teen was killed recently, and another remains in critical condition, following an automobile accident in North Las Vegas in the early hours of last Sunday morning. The deceased, a 17 year old man, was driving a sedan when his vehicle was allegedly hit by another vehicle. A female passenger of the sedan, a girl aged 13 who was thought to be related to the deceased, was thrown from the vehicle. Officers believed this was because she did not have on her seat belt at the time of this wrongful death and injury car accident in Clark County.

People who knew and went to school with the injured and deceased set up a vigil of sorts at the intersection by placing flowers and candles at the scene of the car crash in North Las Vegas. The parent of a child of a similar age, who was at the scene of this vigil, said he would be hard pressed to find the words to relate what happened here (the car accident) to his own child. A man spoke very kindly of the 17 year old boy who died, mentioning his own pride that children like that were out there. Fellow students, classmates, teachers, and the principal of the school the injured and deceased attended gathered at their high school later in the day, hundreds of people in total.
The driver of the vehicle which allegedly caused this automobile accident in the Las Vegas area suffered only minor injuries. It was initially reported that he may have run a stop sign, and faces possible charges on felony counts pending an investigation involving his possibly having been speeding and perhaps under the influence of alcohol in the Clark County crash.
