Witnesses describe moments before 3 people were hit by an SUV

Henderson Police say they found the car involved in a hit-and-run crash that left three people injured Sunday.

According to a news release, the white Suburban was found on Monday, but it doesn't say where it was located.

The vehicle, which was stolen, is a white 2000 Chevy Suburban bearing Arizona license plates. The vehicle also had the name of a business plastered on its back window.

Two of the pedestrians are in critical condition. The driver is still on the run.

Douglas Tait says he will never forget what he saw Sunday afternoon at the intersection of Boulder Highway and Lake Mead Parkway, which is where the pedestrians were struck.

"There was actually two cars in front of us, and one took off, and we rolled forward, and we saw the truck coming and knew it wasn't going to stop," Tait said.

Before the crash, Metro Police spotted a stolen SUV in the area. They tried to pull the vehicle over, but the driver failed to stop, so they started to pursue the SUV.

The officers ended their pursuit, but the driver kept going, not stopping for the pedestrians.

"We could see the guy that when he hit two of the people kind of went flying sideways, and one guy that got hit real squared -- he went flying; his feet came over the top of the hood and on the ground," said Tait.

Andrew Keith was on his way to visit his wife at the hospital when he was sturck. His son says he's a great dad and doesn't deserve what has happened to him.

"Just thinking about my dad getting hit makes me horribly sad," said Casper Royster.

Royster's day, Andrew Keith, who's 56, is now fighting for his life.

According to Royster, his dad has a lot of broken bones.

"He's conscious and knows he's here but can't speak," Royster said. "He can't move like he's in really bad condition. My worries is losing my dad. I already lost my mom when I was 14, so I definitely can't lose my dad."

Royster has a message for the man who did this: He wants him to turn himself in.

"I think it's bad and drivers should learn from this you know," Royster said. "Families could be affected it could be your mom or dad make sure you care for other people."

Royster says his father hasn't been working and lives month to month, so he wants to start a GoFundMe page to get help to pay for medical expenses.

As for the suspect description, unfortunately, it is quite vague. All the police have to go on is that it is a black male adult.
