Updated June 1, 2021 - 8:58 am

Police say a four-vehicle crash in North Las Vegas injured four children and an adult Monday night, including a 5-year-old boy who was in critical condition at a Las Vegas Valley hospital.

North Las Vegas police spokesman Alexander Cuevas said at 9:46 p.m., officers were called to the intersection of Cheyenne Avenue and Decatur Boulevard for the multi-vehicle crash.

“Preliminary investigation revealed a gray newer Nissan sedan was traveling southbound on Decatur approaching Cheyenne and a green Dodge sport utility vehicle was traveling eastbound on Cheyenne approaching Decatur,” Cuevas said. “The Nissan and Dodge collided in the intersection and then drifted into an Acura sport utility vehicle and a Volkswagen sedan.”

The driver of the Nissan, a woman in her 30s, and four children in her car were taken by ambulance to University Medical Center. The 5-year-old suffered life-threatening injuries, Cuevas said.

Cuevas said police are still investigating but the drivers involved remained on the scene and were cooperative with police.
