LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — North Las Vegas police said they are awaiting a toxicology report to determine if a woman was driving impaired early Sunday when her car struck a sign, critically injuring two passengers, her young children who were not in seatbelts.
Kazjah Dillon, 24, of North Las Vegas, is facing multiple charges after fleeing the scene at Camino Al Norte and Edna Crane Avenue just before 6:30 a.m., police said. Her two children — one is about a year old and the other a few months old — were taken to University Medical Center, where they were in stable condition, police said.
Dillon is charged with driving with a suspended license, hit and run, failure to secure her children in the required restraints and several motor vehicle infractions, including excessive speed and failure to maintain her lane, police said.
In a statement, North Las Vegas police said “DUI is suspected, but investigators are awaiting toxicology reports for confirmation.”
Positive results could mean that “further charges may be brought against the driver,” the statement said.
Dillon was driving north on Camino Al Norte, failed to maintain her travel lane, left the roadway and hit the Las Palmares neighborhood sign at Edna Crane Avenue, police said.
Patrol officers found the vehicle, a 2012 Chrysler 200, and the children were taken to University Medical Center with critical injuries, police said.
Police said a preliminary investigation determined the woman was impaired and that she sustained injuries that were non-life threatening.
