Las Vegas accident: One person was killed and 37 others injured when a driver plowed into people on the Las Vegas Strip.

One person died and 37 others were injured Sunday night after a driver plowed into pedestrians on the Las Vegas Strip.

According to NBC News, at least seven people were in critical condition as a result of what the police are calling a “major accident.” Las Vegas police Lt. Peter Boffelli said it isn’t clear whether the driver, currently undergoing sobriety tests, drove into the people intentionally.

“This is a huge tragedy that has occurred on our Strip,” Boffelli said. In a tweet, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said that the driver was taken into custody immediately following the accident. USA Today reports that the crash occurred near the Planet Hollywood hotel-casino, where the Miss Universe pageant was being hosted.

Sofie Kitterød, a witness of the Las Vegas accident, said, “What we’ve heard is that a car drove up on the sidewalk by Planet Hollywood and continued past Paris Hotel. There are many ambulances on both sites.”
