A pedestrian was in serious condition and another in jail after a hit-and-run accident Wednesday night near Circus Circus, Metro Police said.
Gosani Vallabhdas, 76, was crossing Industrial Road south of Circus Circus Drive about 7:50 p.m. when he was hit by a 2009 Ford Explorer driven by Scott Lefkowitz of Las Vegas, police said.
Vallabhdas, who is from India, was not in a crosswalk, police said.
Vallabhdas was taken to University Medical Center with serious injuries.
Lefkowitz left the scene and went to his workplace, where he was arrested early Thursday on a count of felony hit-and-run, Metro said. He was booked at the Clark County Detention Center.
The incident is under investigation.
