One person is dead and six others critically injured after a woman in an Oldsmobile with a three year old toddler in the back seat plowed into over thirty people on the Las Vegas Strip.
Police said that an African American woman in her twenties intentionally drove onto the sidewalk hitting numerous pedestrians near Planet Hollywood and the Paris resort and casino.
Officials said that they have ruled out terrorism but added that this was an “intentional act” based upon the car’s movements. The woman drove her vehicle onto the sidewalk “two, maybe three times” according to the police.
Authorities said that the toddler who was in the back seat of the 1996 Oldsmobile was unharmed.
Several witness reported attempting to free the child from the vehicle but were unable to break the window safely to get the toddler out.
The motive for the attack and the identity of the woman remains unknown at this time. The woman has been in Las Vegas for only a week and the vehicle had an Oregon license plate.
