LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas Metro Police are investigating a deadly crash involving a 9-year-old boy, identified as Julian Casino, in an east valley neighborhood. According to police, Julian was running alongside his mother’s car when he fell and was run over.
It happened Monday around 3:16 p.m. on Paveston Lane, near Charleston and Hollywood boulevards.
At the time of the crash, Julian was running along the passenger side of the Acura RDX when he fell and the rear wheel of the vehicle hit him.
He was taken to Sunrise Hospital with critical injuries and was later pronounced dead.
Police said the driver, Mireya Casino, stayed at the scene and did not show signs of impairment.
This is the 53rd traffic-related fatality in Las Vegas Metro’s jurisdiction in 2022 and the second incident this past week in which a child was involved in a crash.
On Friday, that child was taken to the hospital after suffering life-threatening injuries in a skateboarding incident that occurred in the 5600 block of Forsythe Drive.
That incident is still under investigation and happened two miles from Monday’s deadly crash.
