Terrorism Ruled out in Las Vegas Strip Crash

Duque Law - Personal Injury Lawyers

One person is dead and six others are in critical condition after a woman drove her car through a crowd on the Las Vegas Strip, officials said.

The car drove north on the sidewalk, striking numerous pedestrians near Planet Hollywood hotel-casino, where the Miss Universe pageant was being held, police said.

There were believed to be a total of 37 people injured in the crash, police said. Twelve victims were taken to Sunrise Medical Center, 11 to University Medical Center and 3 to Spring Valley.

The female suspect drove off after the incident, but police caught up with her shortly afterwards and she was detained, Clark County officials said.

The investigation, which shut down S Las Vegas Boulevard in both directions between Flamingo and Harmon roads, involved homicide, counterterrorism and traffic fatality officers, officials said.

In their most recent press conference, officials ruled out terrorism as a possible motive, but still believe the incident may have been intentional. The driver was being tested for alcohol and controlled substances, officials said.

The woman driving the vehicle had a 3-year-old toddler with her. The toddler was unharmed.
