A young mother walking with her children was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street on a central Las Vegas intersection, Tuesday afternoon.

The young family was crossing the street at Eastern Avenue and Bonanza Road, when a Ford Mustang ran a red light and collided with an SUV, which was sent towards the woman and her two daughters walking.

The children, a 1-year-old girl and a 5-year-old boy, were taken to University Medical Center and are expected to make full recoveries. However, their 26-year-old mother was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Impairment was not believed to be a factor in the accident and no arrests have been made so far.
