ORIGINAL STORY

Two teens are dead after their vehicle was hit by an alleged drunk driver around 10 p.m. Saturday.

Witnesses and evidence at the scene indicated that a Ford Expedition was traveling south on Marion Drive, while a Kia Soul was going east on Judson Avenue. The Ford failed to stop at a stop sign and crashed into the left side of the Kia as it crossed the intersection.

Both vehicles rotated and stopped. The two teenage passengers were ejected from the back seat of the Kia and pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Kia and the passenger in the front seat were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

Police arrested the driver of the Ford, identified as 36-year-old Pablo Torres, under suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. The crash remains under investigation.

One of the teens was identified by the Clark County Coroner as 16-year-old Moises Rivera from Las Vegas. The other teen has been unofficially identified by family as 14-year-old Oscar Ayala.

A GoFundMe has been set up for Ayala.
