Woman critical after being struck by car on Las Vegas Strip

A 45-year-old woman was in critical, but stable condition Wednesday morning after she was struck by a car Tuesday night on the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas police responded just before 10:30 p.m. to the accident in the 3800 block of Las Vegas Boulevard South, near West Tropicana Avenue.

The woman was crossing Las Vegas Boulevard from east to west, outside of a crosswalk, when she was struck in the center left-turn lane by a 2001 Chevrolet Malibu, according to police spokesman Lt. David Gordon.

She was transported to University Medical Center with critical injuries.

The 19-year-old driver of the Malibu was not injured.
