Toddler in critical condition after crash near Maryland, Desert Inn


According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, a toddler is in critical condition after being hit by a vehicle near Maryland Parkway and Desert Inn Road.

The accident took place around 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

A 21-month-old boy was crossing the street with four other people in the crosswalk when the driver struck all of them, causing them to fly approximately 20 feet.

All of the victims were transported to Sunrise Trauma. The toddler has since been transferred to UMC Trauma.

In a statement released Wednesday morning, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police say their investigation indicates a woman was with a 21-month-old boy, a 4-year-old girl, and a baby in a stroller crossing Maryland Parkway in a marked crosswalk.

The car, a 2002 Jaguar XType, was heading south on Maryland and hit all four people, according to LVMPD. Three of them were taken via ambulance to Sunrise, with a bystander taking one of the kids to the hospital in their personal car.

The 4-year-old girl and baby suffered minor injuries. The woman suffered what police say were substantial injuries, but they are not believed to be life-threatening.

The driver of the Jaguar, identified as a 53-year-old man, stayed at the scene and did not show any signs of impairment, according to LVMPD. It's unclear if he faces any charges.
