    A woman ran up onto the sidewalk in front of Planet Hollywood after the Miss Universe fiasco tonight and it is being said between 20-90 people hit. Also reports of shots being fired inside Planet Hollywood. KTNV is just starting to report.

    Reports saying she had a child in the car, turned herself in to Tuscany Hotel Security and sobriety tests being done. Multiple casualties reported.

    Just saw this. Prayers to all involved. Hopefully the three casualties already reported are the only lives lost.

    I'll never understand why people choose to get behind the wheel when impaired.

    She made it all the way to Tuscany? Damn.

    Thoughts and prayers for the victims and her child that is going to have to find a new mother figure.

    Good God. I was in PH this morning before flying back to DC. Could have easily been me, and I never stop to think of how fortunate I truly am not to have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. Many sympathies to the innocent victims.

    Yeah, the toddler is okay fortunately. Those in critical condition have been quoted to be "stable" at least, if I heard correctly. I currently have NBC News3 live streaming at low volume. They are on sports for the moment though.
