A pedestrian was transported to University Medical Center in critical condition after being hit by a minivan on the valley’s east side Thursday afternoon.
Las Vegas police received a call at 2:30 p.m. after the pedestrian was hit near Nellis and Las Vegas boulevards.
It is unclear if the pedestrian was in a marked crosswalk at the time of the accident, and police have closed down the surrounding area while they investigate.
This is an ongoing investigation. Check back for updates.
