LAS VEGAS – A crash left a pedestrian in critical condition on Saturday afternoon and is being looked into by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD).
At about 5:53 p.m., the LVMPD got a call about a serious injury that happened in a crash between a car and a pedestrian on South Nellis Boulevard, south of where it meets East Charleston Boulevard.
Investigators said a gray Hyundai Sonata was going south on South Nellis Boulevard when a man who had been walking on the west sidewalk of South Nellis Boulevard to the south of the approaching Hyundai left the sidewalk and walked east into the Hyundai’s path of travel.
Police say that the front of the Hyundai hit the person on the sidewalk and threw him to the south. Responding emergency medical services took the person, who was in critical condition, to Sunrise Hospital.
Officials said that the Hyundai’s driver stayed at the scene of the accident and showed signs of impairment that were consistent with using marijuana. The woman, whose name was Shermonique Batiste and who was 49 years old, was taken to the Clark County Detention Center and booked for DUI.
The accident is still being looked into.
