Woman Hospitalized After Being Hit by Driver in Las Vegas
LAS VEGAS, NV (October 28, 2019)—A woman suffered critical injuries Saturday after a car struck her along East Desert Inn Road near Boulder Highway.
According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, the incident happened around 6:45 p.m. along the eastbound lanes outside of a crosswalk.
A 2016 Dodge Journey driver attempted to stop after spotting the woman while heading east on Desert Inn Road. However, the attempts at avoiding a crash failed, causing the vehicle to strike the female pedestrian.
Shortly after, paramedics brought her to Sunrise Trauma while the driver remained at the scene.
LVMPD Lt. Ken Nogle ruled out impairment, and the fault most likely lies on the pedestrian’s part.
However, fatal detectives are investigating this case further.
