LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Police say three adults and two children were transported to the hospital after a suspected DUI crash in North Las Vegas. One of the children remains in critical condition.

Officers with North Las Vegas Police Department responded to the crash involving three vehicles shortly before 8 p.m. at the intersection of Cheyenne Avenue and Pecos Road.

As of 11 p.m. on Thursday, the intersection remains closed and crime scene investigators are on the scene. Drivers are asked to avoid the area.

Police believe a red Chevy Silverado was speeding southbound on Pecos when a silver Nissan SUV was making a left turn from Pecos to travel westbound on Cheyenne. The red Chevy Silverado crashed with the SUV and both vehicles pushed into a silver Ford Focus.

Two men were inside the red Chevy Silverado. Both suffered injuries and were transported to UMC, police say. It is not clear the extent of those injuries at this time.

Inside the Nissan SUV a woman was driving with two children, a one-year-old and a four-year-old. All three were transported to UMC, police say. The one-year-old was listed in critical condition but is now stable. The four-year-old is still listed in critical condition. Police say the woman has minor injuries.

Three people were in the silver Ford focus. Police say they all remained on scene and were not transported to the hospital.

NLVPD says it would like to remind everyone to not drink and drive and stay vigilant or reckless drivers.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the agency at 702-633-9111.
