Pedestrian critically injured in car crash in North Las Vegas

A woman was hospitalized with critical injuries after she was struck by a car in North Las Vegas late Monday.

Police were called just before 10 p.m. to the area of Lake Mead Boulevard and McDaniel Street, near Civic Center Drive, North Las Vegas Police Department spokesman Aaron Patty said.

A woman in her 50s was crossing Lake Mead when she was hit by a car, Patty said. Preliminary information indicates she was crossing outside of a crosswalk, he said.

She was taken to University Medical Center with life-threatening injuries, Patty said.

The driver stayed on scene and cooperated with police. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor at this point in the investigation, Patty said.

Eastbound Lake Mead is closed between McDaniel and Bruce streets while police investigate, Patty said.
