Driver takes off after striking a person in a tent along Sandhill Road

A Utah man was arrested after police said he had hit someone with his car and fled the scene. Around 1:56 a.m. on Sunday, a 2012 Chevrolet Cruze LS had been heading north on S. Sandhill Road toward E. Hawaii Road, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Meanwhile, a person had been sleeping inside a makeshift tent on a desert area on the east side of the Sandhill/Hawaii intersection. Police had said the car had traveled off-road and had hit the person in the tent. After the wreck, the car had stopped inside a business just north of the crash where several motorists had contacted the driver and his front passenger, telling them to wait for police. After a brief discussion with witnesses, the driver and his passenger had returned to the vehicle and had fled the scene.

Police had said the two had abandoned the car nearby and had fled on foot. The driver had later been identified and located and had been placed under arrest on related charges. The person in the tent had been taken to University Medical Center’s Trauma Unit, where he had remained in critical condition.

Speeding was responsible for an average of 30 deaths per day in 2022, resulting in a total of 11,000 traffic-related fatalities. It was a factor in 29 percent of all deaths on Nevada roads that year. This alarming statistic stresses the importance of following speed limits and driving safely.

Help in a Crisis

Following a traumatic event, people often feel helpless, confused, and experience emotional shock. They are confronted with a situation for which they are totally unprepared.

Often there is no one available in the immediate aftermath of a tragedy to guide the victims through these difficult hours. The TIP volunteer provides this necessary temporary support until persons involved in the crisis are able to depend on family, friends, neighbors, and other resources in the community.
