A 14-year-old Las Vegas girl walking across a street suffered critical injuries Tuesday evening after she was struck by a Lamborghini in the western Las Vegas Valley, authorities said.
Metro Police responded at 6:13 p.m. to the collision near the intersection of Cimarron Road and Tara Avenue. That location is south of West Sahara Avenue between Durango and Buffalo drives.
Investigators said the Lamborghini Gallardo had just turned from southbound Cimarron and was traveling east on Tara when it struck the girl as she was crossing Tara from the north to the south side of the street. She was outside of a marked crosswalk, police said.
The collision occurred about 70 feet east of Cimarron.
The driver of the Lamborghini, Lewis Stevens, 35, of Las Vegas, wasn't able to stop before striking the girl. She was taken to University Medical Center's trauma unit with critical injuries, police said. Her name wasn't being released because of her age. Stevens wasn't injured.
The crash remains under investigation by the Metro Police Accident Investigations Section.
