Detective Chad Parque succumbed to injuries sustained the previous day when his department vehicle was struck head-on by another vehicle on Martin Luther King Boulevard, near Carey Avenue, at approximately 2:00 pm.
He had just left the North Las Vegas Justice Court when the other vehicle, which was traveling the wrong way on the roadway, struck his vehicle. A third vehicle then collided with his car. Rescue personnel extricated him from the vehicle and transported him to University Medical Center, where he passed away approximately 12 hours later.
Detective Parque had served with the North Las Vegas Police Department for 10 years. He is survived by his wife, children, and siblings.
