Teen Arrested for Accident that Killed 5, DUI Suspected

An 18 year old man was arrested and is to make his first court appearing for a car accident that leads to the death of five people; investigators believe he was driving under the influence of alcohol. The local authorities claim that this man was driving down the road when he rear ended a van, causing an accident that lead to the death of five other individuals, injuring two others as well.

This man was being held in Las Vegas at a detention center as he awaited the hearing. Not only was he being charges with possible DUI and manslaughter, but also for failing to decrease his driving speed, reckless driving, as well as driving without a license. Inside the van was a family of seven from southern California, and only 2 of them were wearing seatbelts, the other 5 were not and they were ejected from the car and killed at the scene.

The two victims with injuries were originally taken into the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries; however they were recently upgraded from being in critical condition to serious. Police reports show that the driver was with an older man, and at first neither admitted to being behind the wheel; though eventually the younger boy did. Both the driver and the passenger were treated at the local hospital for minor injuries.
