Las Vegas police are investigating a hit-and-run crash Tuesday night in the east valley.
A Metropolitan Police Department officer was investigating a crash at East Charleston Boulevard and Lamont Street, near Nellis Boulevard, when a green Nissan Pathfinder caused a second crash nearby, Lt. Grant Rogers said.
The Nissan SUV drove into oncoming traffic just before 8 p.m. on the 4800 block of East Charleston Boulevard, struck a vehicle and then hit a pedestrian in a crosswalk, he said. The SUV fled west on Charleston and then turned in to a strip mall parking lot.
The pedestrian suffered a broken leg and a broken arm, Rogers said.
Police are still looking for the SUV, he said.
No further information was immediately available.
