North Las Vegas Police Released the Identity of Boy Killed in an Accident
The police have officially revealed the identity of the twelve-year-old boy who was killed in a pickup truck accident.
Alexander Bush died when pickup truck hit him and his nine-year-old sister while they were crossing the street near their school in North Las Vegas.
His 9-year-old sister is in hospital, North Las Vegas Police Department spokesman Eric Leavitt reported on Wednesday. The girl’s condition is the same, for now.
The accident occurred around 3:30 p.m., on Friday, while the children were crossing Lone Mountain Road, east of Losee Road and adjacent to Somerset Academy.
Alexander passed away two days after the crash at University Medical Center.
The police have arrested the forty-seven-year-old driver Mark Kline, who is now booked into the Las Vegas City Jail. He is charged of careless driving around pedestrians, failure to pay full time, and attention while driving and failure to maintain proper lanes.
According to the court records, Kline was released from custody after posting bond.
North Las Vegas police reported Kline would also be charged with vehicle manslaughter, even though that charge was not released in online court records as of Wednesday afternoon.
Pedestrian accidents are causing far more harm than any other accident. The pedestrian is exposed to a higher risk than a car driver and usually ends up with severe injuries or even death.
Pedestrians, just like any participant in the traffic, should act carefully and respect traffic signs. However, even if the accident was the pedestrian’s fault, he or she should file a lawsuit and seek compensation for their injuries.
If you were injured in a pedestrian accident or have lost a loved one in such a crash, it is time for action.
