Car Drives Into Crowd On Vegas Strip — One Dead, Over 30 Injured
One person is dead, 37 have been reported injured after a car drove into a crowd of pedestrians on the Las Vegas strip Sunday night.
So far it is not yet known whether the act was intentional or accidental.
The driver is in custody and is reportedly being tested for blood alcohol content, as well as other drugs.
Eyewitness Antonio Nassar described the shocking scene to reporters, saying:
“The car rolled right in front of me. By the time I looked over to the right, all you could see was [her] driving away and people were bouncing off the front of the car, you can hear it…
The windshield is smashed at this point. She rode the sidewalk, she came to a stop at the Paris intersection, people are punching into the window … she accelerated again and just kept mowing people down.”
Emergency responders have not released the name of the victim who was killed. As of now, seven more are in critical condition.
We hope they pull through. Our hearts go out to all the victims and their families.
