Bail set at $200,000 for driver accused of killing man changing a flat

A Las Vegas judge set bail at $200,000 on Thursday for a man facing charges he killed a man while driving under the influence of drugs.

Gary Richard Adair, 22, was using heroin when he hit 38-year-old Kadar Lee Brown about 5:30 p.m. on U.S. Highway 95 near the Summerlin Parkway exit on Monday night, authorities said.

Justice of the Peace Susan Baucum set the bail at a hearing Thursday morning.

The Nevada Highway Patrol said Brown was on the right shoulder of U.S. 95 changing a flat tire when Adair hit him with his Dodge Durango.
