Coroner IDs teens killed in northwest Las Vegas crash

Updated March 8, 2024 - 2:53 pm

The Clark County coroner’s office Thursday identified two teenage boys killed in a northwest Las Vegas crash last week.

On March 1 at 10:10 p.m., 16-year-old David Gomez-Mojarro and his passenger Jovan Barrios, 17, were in a 2008 Ford Crown Victoria speeding eastbound on Vegas Drive toward the intersection with Pyramid Drive.

An unknown dark sedan also sped eastbound with the Ford. A crash occurred when a 2005 Nissan Frontier made a left turn from Pyramid onto westbound Vegas. The dark sedan fled the scene but the driver of the Nissan stayed on scene and did not show signs of impairment.

Gomez-Mojarro and Barrios both died at the scene.

An online fundrasier to raise money for Barrios’ funeral expenses had raised about $3,500 as of Friday afternoon.

“He was a good son,” Carlos Hernandez said in an email. “He did a lot to help everyone who needed help. He would give the shirt of his back to you if you needed.”

As of Friday morning, no arrest had been made in connection with the crash.
