Mesquite man arrested after crash; 4 kids injured
MESQUITE, Nev. (AP) -- Four small children are injured and a man has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving after a weekend crash in Mesquite.
Police say they arrived at the scene Sunday afternoon and found two bystanders restraining a driver who had apparently tried to flee the scene. Authorities say he hit two vehicles parked along a curb.
Three children were transported to a hospital in Mesquite, while police say a fourth was airlifted to Las Vegas because of the severity of her injuries. The children range in age from 1 to 5 years old.
Police arrested 33-year-old Mesquite resident Cesar Flores-Carillo on suspicion of driving under the influence, child endangerment, child restraint, and traffic violations.
