A pedestrian was critically injured Thursday night after being struck by a car in the central valley, Las Vegas police said.
Officers were called at about 6:10 p.m. to the 1300 block of East Sahara Avenue, near Maryland Parkway, after reports of a crash, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Richard Meyers said. A car had crashed into a pedestrian who was not in a crosswalk, he said.
The pedestrian was hospitalized in critical condition, Meyers said.
The driver of the car did not appear to be impaired, and weather does not appear to be a factor in the crash, he said. The area around the crash was expected to be closed to traffic for several hours, Meyers said at about 8:15 p.m.
Further information about the crash was not immediately available.
