Pedestrian critically injured in hit-and-run crash on Las Vegas Boulevard

LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — A pedestrian suffered life-threatening injuries in a suspected hit-and-run crash on the north end of the Las Vegas Strip Monday morning, according to police.

Officers could be seen outside the entrance to Wynn Las Vegas on the Strip, just north of Spring Mountain Road.

The crash was reported just before 6:15 a.m., according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police's traffic incident page.
An LVMPD spokesperson said in an email the pedestrian was taken to UMC with life-threatening injuries.

In a statement released later Monday, LVMPD's traffic unit said they learned a dark color, newer model Toyota Camry was heading north on Las Vegas Boulevard and went into the intersection with Wynn Main Gate on a yellow light.

At the same time, the pedestrian, identified as a 52-year-old Las Vegas man, was walking west to east across the boulevard on the north side of the intersection, near the crosswalk, according to LVMPD.

The Toyota hit the man, throwing him into the air. Police say he landed north of the actual point of the crash, and the Toyota drove off without stopping, heading north.

Las Vegas Boulevard was closed in both directions for the response for much of the morning, but the road has since reopened.

Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact LVMPD's collision team at (702) 828-4060 or Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
