DEVELOPING: Boy, 3, killed in driveway accident

A 3-year-old boy was fatally injured Wednesday afternoon after two people were reportedly struck by a vehicle in a residential driveway on West Blosser Ranch Road.

Pahrump Valley Fire Rescue Services and the Nye County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 2700 block of West Blosser Ranch Road at about 1 p.m. for a report of a motor vehicle versus pedestrian accident.

PVFRS Fire Chief Scott Lewis said when crews arrived they discovered two injured patients, one adult and one child.

Lewis said medics deemed the 3-year-old’s injuries warranted more advanced medical care and Mercy Air was called to transport the child to University Medical Center in Las Vegas.

Sources tell the Pahrump Valley Times, however, that the child has since died from those injuries.

The adult patient was transported locally to Desert View Hospital.

NCSO is conducting an investigation into the accident and has so far released few details.
