Police looking for car involved in hit and run on Nellis Boulevard

Police are looking for a motorist who fled the scene after striking an 18-year-old woman and a 7-year-old boy in a crosswalk on Saturday.

Las Vegas police said a late 70s to mid-80s white sedan, possibly a Buick Riviera or an Oldsmobile, was heading north on Nellis Boulevard when it struck the two at New World Avenue, north of Sahara Avenue.

The victims were crossing Nellis from west to east in a crosswalk. Northbound traffic stopped in the left and right lanes, but the car in the middle lane did not, police said.

The 18-year-old, identified as KellyAnn Thompson of Las Vegas, was taken to University Medical Center with critical injuries. The boy, whose name was not released, was taken to UMC with serious injuries.

Police said the white sedan should have moderate damage to the front passenger’s side and windshield.

Anyone with information on the driver or the car is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 385-5555 or Det. Dennis Magill at 828-3317.
