|Tragedy in Las Vegas.|
The taping of the Miss Universe Pageant was a disaster. Entertainer Steve Harvey messed up on the Miss Universe winner. That became the talk of the nation. Matter of fact, while that was going on, a woman driving on the Las Vegas strip intentionally drove on the sidewalk and plowed over tourists.
The law said that the woman intentionally swerved her car onto a busy sidewalk two or three times Sunday and mowed down people outside a Las Vegas casino, killing one person and injuring at least 30 others.
The injured were tourist from Montreal, Quebec, the majority French spoken province in Canada.
There were some who spoke in fluent French and needed translators.
The Las Vegas metro police said that the incident isn't terrorism. They believe that the act is deliberate because of possible OVI and drug use.
Police say the woman, who is in her 20s, had a 3-year-old child in the car with her at the time. The child was unharmed.
The woman who police said had recently arrived in Las Vegas drove a 1996 four-door Oldsmobile with Oregon license plates.
Lt. Dan McGrath says police now believe this woman "went up and off these streets, two or possibly three times." The woman is being interviewed and is having her blood drawn. She is being held in jail with charges pending.
Six patients who had been admitted to area hospitals in critical condition were stable after their initial treatment.
