Summary:
No indication of why the 66 year old woman was ejected or if she made any threats at the time.

Absence of bollards or other barriers noted.

Driver has been charged with attempted murder of janitor in critical condition.

Driver kept revving the engine until security personnel dragged her from the vehicle and turned off the engine.

Casino has security and EMT teams on duty at all times.

Later smell of "burning electrical insulation" reported near restaurant area and localized to air handler's motor. Such air handlers can accumulate dust or restaurant debris. NLVFD ordered evacuation which affected about 200 patrons for about two hours. One casino sprinkler was activated wetting a small section of carpet.

Bicycle racks and planter boxes are cheap obstructions that prevent vehicle ramming.

A security alert of a player ejection might have helped other guards to be alert.

Sadly this is why more places need to install vehicle barriers and have armed guards because tragedies from crazy people like this are becoming too common.

Hopefully she gets her liscense suspended for life in addition to the other charges, vehicles can be more dangerous than firearms in the hands of crazy people.

Yeah, this isn't PC, but as someone who lived in Florida for 7 years I can say that old people should be banned from the road. I got hit 4 times in as many years from behind by blind blue haired old bats.

This was not a bad driver or an old person not paying attention (I think she was 50s if I recall from article).

She was intentionally trying to cause damage and possibly trying to kill casino employees....

This was pure intent to cause damage and chaos.

I honestly think driver liscense should be harder to obtain. I think the process is far too easy.

The written test needs to be much harder (at least at CDL level) and the skill testing lanes need to be graded stricter (not just a rubber stamp by a DMV employee who is just sitting on his phone....)

Some countries also require a psychological exam to drive, I don't think this is a bad idea either.

I agree but only for uber drivers they are THE worse drivers Iíve ever had the pleasure of getting picked up by.

She appears to have been angry and homicidal but was not crazy.
