LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada authorities say they have arrested a man for crashing into and killing a 16-year-old boy who was driving himself to school.

Nevada Highway Patrol suspects the 47-year-old driver was intoxicated when he hit a car driven by Jaelan Fajardo on Thursday morning. Authorities say Fajardo was stopped at a red light when the other driver hit his vehicle at a high speed.

Trooper Jason Buratczuk says both drivers were taken to the hospital, where Fajardo died. The other driver had non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver was booked on multiple charges, including vehicular homicide - a charge reserved for drivers suspected of being under the influence and with at least three prior DUI convictions.
