Car mows down pedestrians on Las Vegas Strip, killing 1 and injuring dozens more.

A car plowed into pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night, killing at least one and injuring more than three dozen people in what police called a “mass casualty incident.” Just outside Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, where the 2015 Miss Universe Pageant was being broadcast, a woman drove her car onto a crowded sidewalk around 6:40 p.m. Peter Boffelli said at a press conference there is “no telling” whether the incident was an “impairment” — meaning the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs — an act of terrorism, or something else. Homicide and counter terrorism units are at the scene “to ensure that we have this investigation locked and stocked by the end of the night,” he added.

By the time I looked over to the right, all you could see was [her] driving away and people were bouncing off the front of the car, you could hear it,” Nassar said. Brian Sandoval released a statement after the crash, saying that he has spoken with Sheriff Joe Lombardo and extending sympathies to those affected, according to KTNV.
