An officer, who was going after a fleeing person, was hit by a vehicle and injured near Las Vegas Boulevard and Warm Springs Road, police said Thursday night.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, the person, whom police were pursuing, ran across Warm Springs at about 8:15 p.m. A vehicle stopped to avoid hitting the officer. Another vehicle behind it, though, was not able to break in time, rear-ending the stopped vehicle.
