LAS VEGAS (Las Vegas Sun) -- A 6-year-old is in critical condition tonight after getting struck by a motorist who fled the scene of the crash in the southwest valley.

Metro Police Lt. John Liberty said the incident occurred about 7:35 p.m. at South Peace Way and Tenaya Way. The child was rushed to University Medical Center.

It was not immediately clear whether the victim had been trick-or-treating.

Liberty said the department is receiving several calls from witnesses who are providing mixed descriptions of the vehicle that hit the child.

About an hour before the child was struck, another pedestrian was killed after she was hit by a Ford Explorer at South Fort Apache Road near West Tompkins Avenue. That pedestrian, whose age was not available immediately, had not been using a crosswalk.

The Explorer’s driver stopped after the crash and was not cited as of late Thursday.

On Wednesday, a man was hit by a Ford Explorer and killed near Charleston Boulevard and Durango Drive. That pedestrian was also traveling outside a designated crosswalk, and he was deemed to be at fault for the accident.

Metro Police Lt. Barb Schmidt said the man, 60, was rushed to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
