A man was run over by a car early today and dragged about a mile before the driver heard him under the vehicle and stopped, Metro Police said.

The man, identified as Citez Harvell, 22, of Las Vegas was taken to University Medical Center in critical condition after paramedics extricated him from beneath the car, police said.

The incident happened about 3:40 a.m. in the parking lot of Nevada State Bank, 3345 S. Maryland Parkway.

A 51-year-old Las Vegas woman was driving a 2013 Dodge Avenger through the parking lot when she ran over Harvell, who might have been lying on the ground, police said.

With Harvell trapped under the car, the woman exited south onto Maryland Parkway and then drove west on Sierra Vista Drive for about a mile before she heard Harvell and stopped just past Cambridge Street, police said.

The driver and people in the area called 911. Paramedics from the Clark County Fire Department freed him from under the car.

The driver, who remained at the scene, did not show any signs of alcohol or drug impairment, police said.

The accident is under investigation.
