Las Vegas NV | A unknown woman reportedly drove her vehicle on Las Vegas Boulevard in front of Planet Hollywood on to the sidewalk mowing down a large group of people, killing one.
The driver initially hit the group of people and fled the scene attempting to elude Officers. The unidentified female driver was stopped on Flamingo and taken into custody by Police.
Police say they have no motive why she would drive into a group of people then flee. They say they are not ruling this out as an act of terrorism. Drug/Alcohol impairment tests have been conducted. No word on the results.
Thirty-seven victims involved in tonight’s #VegasMCI:
- 26 Injured
- 4 Treated and Released
- 7 Critical
As usual, some media and bloggers were reporting & reposting misinformation saying multiple people were killed.
The Incident Commander [IC] requested the Emergency Operations Center’s Command Vehicle [CV] respond to the scene for coordination.
