The Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP), a division of the Nevada Department of Public Safety that is responsible for law enforcement across the entire state, is investigating a hit-and-run that that disappeared from the crime scene and left a man in critical condition early Sunday morning, July 30.
At about 4:20 in the morning, a broken-down Chevrolet Suburban pickup truck was stopped in the right lane on I-15 southbound at Flamingo Road in Las Vegas. Multiple witnesses claimed that the disabled automotive vehicle’s driver was leaning out his Chevy pickup truck’s window and a Toyota rear-ended him, ejecting the former from his car.
The traffic behind the crashed car had stopped, but the driver of a black Chevy Suburban truck drove around traffic and ran over the man as he was on the superhighway, the Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Jason Buratczuk said to the reporters.
The Chevrolet Suburban continued to drive to southbound on I-15, and the driver is still unidentified.
The driver of the sedan-type Toyota car who initially hit the Chevy Suburban pickup truck remained at the scene and gestured no indications of any impairment, Buratczuk said.
Meanwhile, the highly injured civilian who was hit-and-run over by the automobile was brought to the nearest hospital, the University Medical Center, with life-threatening situation. The Nevada Highway Patrol’s fatal group is investigating the car collisions.
The NHP is kindly asking anyone who saw the accident or who might have information on the Chevrolet Suburban’s driver to call 702-432-5113 or CrimeStoppers at 702-385-5555.
