LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- Two people were critically injured in separate accidents early Sunday in the central portion Las Vegas Valley.

Drugs or alcohol were a factor in one accident and possibly the other as well.

Metro reported that a 6:04 a.m. single-car accident on North Nellis Boulevard at Stanley Avenue caused three injuries with a 19-year-old female transported to UMC Trauma in critical condition.

"All of the occupants were in their late teens and they hit a light pole," Metro Lt. Michael Wallace told News 3. "We will be doing a blood draw to check for alcohol or other factors."

The second accident occurred at 7:51 a.m. on southbound Rancho Drive between Owens and Washington when three cars collided.

One person has been arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.

The most serious injury was a person who was ejected and has a critical head injury, Wallace said. Three other injuries were minor and none were transported.

Wallace said Metro's fatal investigation team has been called to the Rancho accident.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
