North Las Vegas Police to Investigate LVMPD for Running Over Woman

An investigation into why a LVMPD officer ran over a pedestrian will be conducted outside the department by the North Las Vegas Police Department, according to the NLVMP information officer Aaron Patty.

The woman was hit by the Ford Explorer police SUV shortly before 9 p.m. Saturday as she crossed a busy street near Sam’s Town Hotel & Gambling Hall. She died later at a hospital.

Authorities did not immediately disclose her name or identify the two officers in the patrol vehicle.

The police vehicle was not responding to an emergency call when the accident happened, and the woman was not in a crosswalk, Patty said.

It was one of two fatal crashes in the same area that happened at about the same time.

 

Authorities had not identified the woman Monday because authorities were still trying to contact her relatives.
