A 31-year-old pedestrian was seriously injured in an accident on Saturday morning in the central Las Vegas Valley, police said.
The crash occurred around 6:25 a.m. on Las Vegas Boulevard North and East Washington Avenue, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.
Two SUVs crashed, sent one of the vehicles onto the sidewalk and hit a pedestrian, Lt. Ken Nogle.
Investigators found that one of the cars, a 2003 Chevrolet Trailblazer driven by a 26-year-old woman, did not stop at a red light and crashed into a 2009 Dodge Journey driven by an 18-year-old woman the police with.
“The collision directed the Dodge onto the sidewalk and hit the pedestrian,” the department said.
The 31-year-old man who was hit was taken to the university hospital with serious injuries, police said. The Dodge driver was briefly hospitalized with minor injuries, and the 26-year-old woman who drove the Chevrolet stayed on the scene working with investigators.
Police do not believe the nuisance was a factor in the crash.
