Police seek help in identifying pedestrian hit near South Cabana Drive


A pedestrian was seriously injured Friday night after she was hit by a car near South Cabana Drive north of East Austin Court, according to Metro Police.

Police say an unidentified female was walking east across Cabana Drive at about 11:37 p.m. when 60-year-old Robert Geers of Las Vegas hit her with his 1998 Mercury Grand Marquis.

The pedestrian — who was not in a marked crosswalk at the time of the accident, according to police — was knocked into the roadway. Geers stopped and stayed at the scene.

The woman was transported to Sunrise Hospital with serious injuries.

Police said they were unable to identify the victim and urge anyone with information about her identity to call the Las Vegas Metropolitan Accident Investigation Section at 702-828-3802. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.

The accident is under investigation.

  1. <<Of course she wasn't in the crosswalk, according to the article she was knocked INTO the roadway therefore she must have been on the sidewalk. It is getting more and more dangerous to walk on the sidewalks these days>>

    This does not mean she was walking on the sidewalk!! My understanding of the facts as written was she was not in the crosswalk but perhaps crossing a few feet OFF the curb and when she was hit, thrown INTO the middle of the street. Get it?

  2. << I wonder if pedestrians know that they are difficult to see and motorist do not expect them to be crossing just anywhere at anytime>>

    This is true everywhere. I was coming home one day this week and it wasn't late but dark out already with a slight mist. In the distance as I drove down a 4 lane BUSY highway, I saw someone crossing this highway. It has very few crosswalks since it IS a highway, but this person decided to cross halfway between the lighted intersections. Lucky for him there was a break in traffic on BOTH sides of the street. Then, for a couple of days in the morning this week, we had very heavy fog, with visibility maybe a half a block, if that. Of course, the runners and dog walkers were out WITHOUT reflective clothing! You couldn't see anyone until you were almost on top of them!! My thought was if you're going to walk or run in the fog, buy a damn orange jacket!!! And hope no one hits you. How stupid can people be?
