A pedestrian was hospitalized in critical condition after being hit by two vehicles Sunday afternoon near downtown Las Vegas.
Police were called to the intersection of Sahara Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard South after receiving a report of a man who had been struck by the vehicles, Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Travis Smaka said. Dispatch logs show the Metropolitan Police Department was called just before 4:15 p.m.
The man, who is in his 70s, was outside of a crosswalk when he was struck by a Chevrolet Equinox and a Toyota Corolla, Smaka said. He was taken to University Medical Center in critical condition. Investigators did not immediately suspect impairment to be a factor, Smaka said.
