Updated December 13, 2022 - 9:50 pm

The Clark County coroner’s office has identified two toddlers killed in a North Las Vegas car crash Sunday night.

Three-year-old Taylor Wilmer died at the scene after the silver Honda van she was riding in hit a palm tree head on near a curve of Scott Robinson Boulevard, north of Lone Mountain Road, in a suspected DUI crash. Two-year-old Rose Wilmer was taken to University Medical Center, and died in the early hours of Monday morning, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.

North Las Vegas Police said the girls were wearing adult seat belts instead of sitting in child car seats while riding in the car.

Police said that speed and impairment were both believed to be factors at the time of the crash.

Both adults who were in the car remained hospitalized as of Tuesday, according to police. Their names have not been released.

The driver, a woman in her 20s, was a family member of the girls and the adult passenger was their mother, according to police.
