Police seek driver in hit, run crash on Charleston

Metro Police are searching for a driver involved in a hit-and-run collision with two pedestrians on Charleston Boulevard that left one woman in critical condition this morning.

Police spokesman Marcus Martin said the pedestrians were hit while walking across Charleston Boulevard in a crosswalk about 1 a.m. He said a vehicle described as a black or blue car with a broken windshield was traveling westbound on Charleston when the crash occurred near the intersection with Las Vegas Boulevard.

He said both victims were taken to University Medical Center, where one was said to be in critical condition, but has since been stabilized. The other victim suffered a broken leg, Martin said.

Anyone with information is being asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
