A car involved in a three-vehicle accident on the Las Vegas Strip slammed into a bus stop near the Circus Circus casino Friday afternoon, Metro Police said.
No pedestrians were injured, but the driver of one of the vehicles was transported to Valley Hospital Medical Center, Metro Police Officer Laura Meltzer said.
“One of the drivers possibly had a medical episode, either right before or as a result of the accident,” Meltzer said. “It doesn’t appear any other people are being transported to the hospital.”
The accident occurred about 2 p.m. in the southbound lanes of Las Vegas Boulevard, near Riviera Boulevard, police said. Information was not available about the number of passengers, if any, in the vehicles or if it was the driver who hit the bus stop who was taken to the hospital.
The hallmark of the 3,767-room Circus Circus Hotel, Casino and Theme Park in Las Vegas lies under the Big Top, where circus acts perform on the Midway Stage as part of the world's largest permanent circus.
The Adventuredome, America’s largest indoor theme park, offers five acres of climate-controlled fun for all ages.
Guests of Circus Circus may dine in a variety of restaurants including THE Steak House, rated the best steakhouse by Zagat and recognized a record 20 times in Las Vegas Review-Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” awards, and Rock & Rita’s, where flair bartenders and live music enliven the scene.
Circus Circus also offers a casino, wedding chapel, meeting and convention space and a 30-acre RV park.
