A man was hospitalized in critical condition Tuesday after he was hit by a car in the west valley, Las Vegas police said.
Police responded about 3:05 p.m. to a report of a white car hitting a person near the intersection of Fort Apache Road and Mariner Cove Drive, near Sahara Avenue.
Cameron Hutchinson, 18, was hit in the crosswalk of the southbound lanes of Fort Apache, Metropolitan Police Department Sgt. Paul McCullough said.
Police later said in a news release that the driver, 46-year-old Maria Umali, ran a red light in her car and hit the Hutchinson.
Hutchinson was taken to the trauma unit at University Medical Center, according to the release, and his injuries were listed as critical.
“He’s got a number of broken bones, and if he pulls through this, he’s going to have a long recovery,” McCullough said.
The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with authorities, McCullough said. Impairment is not suspected, he said.
