NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - A candlelight vigil is planned for a North Las Vegas police detective who died in a car crash.

Police say the event for Chad Parque (Par-KAY’) is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

Parque died Saturday morning, about 12 hours after the three-vehicle collision in which he was one of four people injured.

Police say the 32-year-old Parque was a husband and father. He had worked for North Las Vegas Police Department for 10 years.

They say Parque was on-duty when he was leaving the North Las Vegas Justice Court.

A driver heading southbound on Martin Luther King Boulevard entered the lanes of oncoming traffic and struck Parque’s vehicle.

Police say funeral services will be announced at a later date.
