Woman suffers critical injuries in hit-and-run crash in Henderson

A woman is in the hospital with critical injuries after a hit-and-run rollover crash Thursday on Boulder Highway.

Henderson police responded to a crash in the area of Boulder Highway and Major Avenue about 11:50 a.m., police spokesman Scott Williams said.

A red Chrysler Town and Country minivan occupied by a male driver and female passenger was traveling north on Boulder when a gray, four-door, Buick sedan pulled in front of the Chrysler from a private driveway, Williams said.

The Buick clipped the Chrysler, causing it to roll over. The female passenger was partially ejected from the vehicle and taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center with critical injuries, police said.

Williams said the male driver’s injuries are unknown, but he was conscious and walking around when personnel arrived at the scene.

The Buick fled the scene, and police are still looking for the Buick’s driver.

Roads were closed for about four hours for the investigation but have since been reopened.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call the Henderson Police Department at 702-267-4911 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
