(FOX5) – In a tragic incident in southeast Las Vegas over the weekend, two teenagers lost their lives in a devastating car accident. The victims were identified as Thomas Quintero Jr., 16, and Eduardo Barragan, 16, according to the Clark County Coroner. Both teens succumbed to blunt force injuries to the head and torso.

The fatal car accident unfolded around 12:30 p.m. near the intersection of Pecos Road and Hacienda Avenue, marking a somber scene for local authorities. Preliminary investigations by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department revealed that the teens ran a red light, resulting in a collision with another vehicle before striking a street pole.

The impact of the car accident was severe, with the vehicle carrying the teenagers reportedly splitting in half. Tragically, both occupants were ejected from the car. The passenger, Thomas Quintero Jr., was pronounced dead at the scene, while the driver, Eduardo Barragan, was rushed to Sunrise Hospital. Despite medical efforts, he later succumbed to his injuries.

In response to this heartbreaking incident, law enforcement officials emphasized the importance of traffic safety measures. An officer at the scene urged Clark County citizens to obey traffic laws, reduce speed, avoid distractions like phone usage, and consistently wear seatbelts. The officer’s poignant message highlighted the preventable nature of such car accidents and underscored the need for increased awareness and adherence to road safety measures.

This tragic event represents the 36th and 37th traffic fatalities in the jurisdiction, prompting a comprehensive investigation by LVMPD Fatal detectives into the circumstances of this preventable car accident at the intersection of Pecos and Hacienda.
