A pedestrian avoided being seriously injured Friday morning after being struck by a taxi near the front entrance of Bellagio on the Las Vegas Strip.
A cabdriver lost control of his vehicle in the valet area of Bellagio around 2:50 a.m., according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Jason Johansson.
The cab veered toward the front entrance of the resort when it struck a pedestrian and came to rest against a front door of the hotel, Johannson said.
The person struck by the cab was taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Johannson said the incident is being investigated.
