Driver recklessly crashes into multiple vehicles in Las Vegas
A reckless driver was taken into custody on Saturday morning after police reported that they had caused multiple traffic collisions and drove onto a sidewalk on the Las Vegas Strip. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department received a report of a vehicle driving onto a sidewalk toward pedestrians around 1:38 a.m. in the 3500 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard. Pedestrians had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit, police said.
Officers pursued the suspect and Metro’s chopper tracked the vehicle from above as the driver headed eastbound away from the Strip. A short time later, police continued their ground pursuit. They reported that the driver ”had continued to drive recklessly” and caused multiple traffic collisions. ”There was minor damage to a citizen and Metro vehicles,” police stated in a social media post about the incident.
After a search, police reported that they had taken multiple suspects into custody. They believe this to be an isolated incident and say their investigation is ”active and ongoing.” Identities of those arrested were not immediately released by police on Saturday.
