Lt. Peter Boffelli says the vehicle was in the northbound lanes of Las Vegas Boulevard near Bellagio Way when the vehicle drove up onto the sideway in front of the Paris Hotel & Casino and struck pedestrians, including 37 people who were taken to the hospital. One person was killed, seven were in critical condition, 26 injured and four were treated and released.

"This is a huge tragedy that has happened on our Strip," Boffelli says.

Clark County Fire Chief Greg Cassell says the call for help came in at 6:38 p.m. and 70 emergency crew workers were sent to the scene.

Boffelli also says the counter-terrorism unit was at the scene but a motive has not been determined. "(It's) unknown if it's an intentional act or impairment act," he said.

The female driver left the scene. But she has since been taken into custody and is being interviewed and tested for alcohol and controlled substances.

Las Vegas Police Officer Jesse Roybal said the incident did not appear to be a terrorist act.

The Miss Universe pageant was being held nearby at the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino at the time of the crash.
