The mugshot of the woman accused of causing a serious crash that left an 8-year-old boy dead was released Tuesday.

Aylin Alvarez-Perez, 25, was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Friday.

Metro Police said Alvarez-Perez was driving under the influence and “grossly exceeding the speed limit” when she went through the red light near Eastern and Harmon avenues around 8:30 a.m.  Her red Camaro slammed into a gray sedan which had an 8-year-old child in the back seat.

The child’s father and mother were in the driver’s seat and the front passenger seat. They were seriously injured, Metro said.  The child was pronounced dead at Sunrise Hospital.

Police say the initial collision caused the sedan to careen into a third vehicle injuring two other people. A total of four people were taken to the hospital, including Alvarez-Perez.

Another driver’s dash cam video captured the horrific crash. The intersection of Harmon and Eastern was closed for most of the day.

Police say Alvarez-Perez may have also run another red light prior to the crash.
