One Dies, Many Injured As Woman Drives Into Crowd Near Miss Universe Pageant While It Held

One person has been killed and
dozens more were injured when a woman deliberately drove her car onto a crowded
footpath on the Las Vegas Strip, near the hotel where the Miss Universe beauty
pageant was being held, police said.
The woman, who had a
three-year-old in the car with her, was taken into custody on Sunday and was
having her blood tested for possible intoxicants, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police
Deputy Chief Brett Zimmerman told reporters.
Rabia Qureshi, a tourist visiting
from Wisconsin, told broadcaster KSNV she saw victims “flying through the
air” when the car crashed into the throng of people. “The car was like a bowling
ball and the human bodies were like pins,” she said.

Zimmerman said the driver had
intentionally mounted the kerb as many as three times during the incident, and
that charges were expected to be filed against her in coming hours. He gave no
indications of a motive but ruled out the possibility of terrorism.
