NORTH LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- North Las Vegas police said two people were injured after a serious crash early Saturday morning.

According to Eric Leavitt with NLVPD, officers were called to the area of North 5th Street and Craig Road just before 7 a.m. A silver pickup truck was heading east on Craig towards North 5th and a red SUV was heading north on 5th Street towards Craig.

Leavitt said one of the cars ran past a red light and collided into each other. It was unknown which vehicle ran the red light, though the driver of the SUV was suspected of being impaired.

Both drivers were taken to the hospital in critical condition before one of them showed signs of recovery, Leavitt said. By 10 a.m., one of the drivers became stable. The second driver was reported to be in critical, but stable condition.

NLVPD said officers were investigating if the driver of the SUV caused the crash.

The intersection of Craig Road and 5th Street was partially closed for several hours while police investigated, NLVPD said in a tweet. Motorists were advised to avoid the area.
