(LAS VEGAS) — One person was dead and seven others were in critical condition after a woman’s car drove onto the sidewalk along the Las Vegas Strip near Planet Hollywood hotel-casino, where the Miss Universe pageant was being held, police said.
There were believed to be a total of 37 people injured in the crash, authorities said.
It was not clear whether the crash was intentional, an accident or the result of alcohol or drugs, police said.
The Las Vegas Metro Police Department tweeted that Las Vegas Boulevard was closed to traffic in both directions between Flamingo and Harmon roads because of an investigation into an “injury accident.”
Major accident on S. Las Vegas Blvd., please avoid the area. SLVB closed between Harmon and Flamingo while we investigate. #LVMPDnews
