Pedestrian in critical condition after hit by car in Las Vegas

A woman is in critical condition after she was hit by a car Friday night in the central valley, Las Vegas police said.

She was hit while outside of a crosswalk about 9:35 p.m. on West Russell Road between Cameron Street and South Decatur Boulevard, a release said. Investigators determined a 2013 Nissan Altima was westbound on Russell while the pedestrian was crossing the road from south to north.

The Nissan hit the unidentified woman — thought to be in her 30s — while she crossed, the release said. She was hospitalized at University Medical Center in critical condition.

Police said the 30-year-old Nissan driver didn’t appear impaired and remained at the scene.
