4 Pedestrians Hit in Crosswalk

Four people, including a 2-year-old girl, her mother, a 3-year-old, and a 2-month-old were hit by a vehicle Tuesday afternoon in Las Vegas.

The pedestrians were struck at approximately 4:35 p.m. while crossing in a crosswalk near Maryland Parkway and Dumont Boulevard, near Desert Inn Road.

The vehicle was southbound on Maryland when it hit all four, “causing them to fly approximately 20 feet,” according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. They were taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. The 2-year-old girl was critically injured and transferred to University Medical Center.

This is a horrible incident, and our thoughts go out to the injured victims and their families. One hopes the families of these victims carried Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage on their vehicle(s), as this coverage actually protects you and any family members living in your household in the event of a motor vehicle collision, whether in a car, on a bike, or walking as a pedestrian.
