Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A 3-year-old child has died following a head-on collision near Eastern Avenue and Pebble Road.

It happened around noon Monday.

Police said a black SUV, driven by a 36-year-old Las Vegas woman, was making a left turn onto Pebble from Eastern, with a flashing yellow arrow.

The second car involved was a silver Nissan, which was traveling on Eastern and through the intersection on a green light.

The two vehicles collided head on.

All occupants in both vehicles were transported to University Medical Center Trauma, where the 3-year-old was pronounced dead by medical personnel.

The driver of the SUV sustained moderate injuries, while the driver of the car, a 29-year-old male, was in critical condition.

Eastern was closed at Pebble in both directions, due to the crash, but has since reopened.

Action News will update this story with new information when it is received.
