NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - North Las Vegas police believe alcohol, drugs and speed may have played a role in a car jumping a curb and critically injuring two teenagers walking on a sidewalk.

Police say the 16-year-old girl and 18-year-old boy who were hit about 4 p.m. Tuesday remain in the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Witnesses reported 19-year-old driver Cristian Ivan Diaz was speeding when he lost control of his vehicle along Gliding Eagle Road. Police say that immediately after the crash, 18-year-old passenger Ricardo Daniel Velasquez tried to get rid of a small baggie of marijuana.

Diaz was booked on suspicion of failing to maintain a travel lane and failing to obtain a Nevada driver's license within 30 days.

Velasquez was booked on marijuana possession and destruction of evidence charges.
