For visitors and residents of Clark County, especially those who are near Las Vegas, walking around on the sidewalks is a nice way to move around the area. When the weather is nice, pedestrians are likely to be seen all around the Las Vegas area all around the clock. During the day, pedestrians might be visiting local shops. At night, they might be heading to the casinos. The seemingly close proximity of the sidewalks to the roadways means that drivers must be very careful when driving around the area. One driver allegedly didn't pay attention to basic driving laws and injured two people.
The 22-year-old woman was driving northbound on Decatur at around 1:30 in the morning. She veered off the road and onto the sidewalk. Two people, a 17-year-old male and a 26-year-old male, who were walking on the sidewalk were struck by the woman's 2003 Toyota Sequoia. The driver wasn't injured and fled the scene but returned later. When she returned, she was arrested on felony hit-and-run and felony DUI charges. She was taken to the Clark County Detention Center.
