Driver arrested for suspected DUI after crash kills 2 teens

Updated June 25, 2017 - 10:47 am

The driver involved in a northeast valley crash that left two juveniles dead Saturday night was arrested on suspicion of DUI, Las Vegas police said.

The Metropolitan Police Department received a call just before 10 p.m. Saturday about a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Judson Avenue and Marion Drive, north of East Lake Mead Boulevard, Lt. Ken Romane said.

Two vehicles collided in the intersection after a Ford Expedition ran a stop sign, sending a Kia Soul into a desert area.

Two teenage boys were ejected from the Kia and pronounced dead at the scene. The Clark County coroner identified one boy as Moises Rivera, 16. They have not yet released the name of the second boy.

A GoFundMe campaign was created to help Rivera’s family cover his funeral expenses.

Maria Rodriguez, 36, and Lucia Covarrubias, 34, from the same vehicle were transported to University Medical Center with minor injuries, police said.

The Ford’s driver, Pablo Torres-Esparza, 36, was arrested and is in custody at Clark County Detention Center for two counts of DUI resulting in death and one count of driving with a revoked license.

Metro’s collision investigation section continues to investigate.
