Jan 25, 2022 - Las Vegas, Nevada - The parents of a boy who died and his sister who was critically injured in a North Las Vegas crosswalk have filed a lawsuit against the city and other parties.
The incident occurred in February 2020 as Alexander Bush, 12, and Charlotte, 9, were walking home from school at Somerset Academy’s Losee Campus.
Charlotte suffered lifelong disabilities from the crash. The lawsuit filed by attorney Farhan Naqvi alleged that the crosswalk was in a dangerous condition for use due to insufficient warning lights, no school zone signs, no speed limit signs, no crossing guards, and inadequate markings.
The driver of the pickup, Mark Kline, pleaded no contest in February 2021 to vehicular manslaughter and other misdemeanors in the crash.
The complaint filed last week names Kline, the city of North Las Vegas, Somerset Academy, the Nevada State Public Charter School Authority, and several others as defendants. The city declined to comment on the lawsuit, and court records do not list a civil attorney for Kline in the case.
