A busy roadway has reopened near the Las Vegas Strip after a woman was struck by a vehicle and badly injured early Monday.

Police Officer Laura Meltzer says Flamingo Road reopened about 9 a.m. just east of Las Vegas Boulevard, and the woman was hospitalized in critical condition at University Medical Center.

Police are investigating why the woman entered the roadway in an area where pedestrians are restricted before she was hit by a 2005 Kia about 3:45 a.m.

The crash happened not far from a pedestrian overhead walkway between the Bally's and Cromwell hotel-casinos.

The woman's name wasn't immediately made public.

Meltzer says the driver remained at the scene and wasn't believed to have been impaired by drugs or alcohol.
