A man in a wheelchair who was struck by a truck Saturday night in a southwest valley parking lot is expected to survive, Las Vegas police said.
Officers were called at 8 p.m. after the man, who police say is 68, was struck by a red truck in a parking lot on the 8600 block of Nevso Drive, near Flamingo Road and Durango Drive. The man was awake and breathing as first responders made their way to the scene, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Jeff Clark said at about 8:10 p.m.
Lt. Greg Phenis said the man had survivable injuries, and detectives do not believe impairment was a factor in the crash.
The driver remained at the scene after the crash, Clark said. Further information about the crash was not immediately available.
