A driver careened into a crowded sidewalk several times on the Las Vegas Strip, injuring more than 30 people in what authorities described as an “intentional” act.  Authorities said at least one person was killed and 37 others injured near the Paris Las Vegas Hotel on Sunday night.

Witnesses claim the woman was driving down the Strip before her car jumped onto the sidewalk and started striking pedestrians.  She allegedly returned to the sidewalk at different spots and hit more people before barreling down the road.

Police arrested the driver, and she is undergoing tests for alcohol and controlled substances. A 3-year-old in the car with her was unharmed.

Terrorism was ruled out by authorities, saying an initial investigation shows the driver did it deliberately.  Deputy Police Chief Brett Zimmerman said the driver, who is in her 20s, went on the sidewalk at least three or four times.

Homicide division officials are looking at numerous surveillance videos from the Strip.  Antonio Nassar said people scrambled to stop the woman as she drove on the sidewalk.

Rows of ambulances and police cars gathered at the scene, their lights flickering. A witness also told reporters others tried to stop the driver and drag the toddler out.
