A pedestrian was fatally struck by a vehicle in northeast Las Vegas Tuesday night.

The crash occurred around 6:45 p.m. near North Nellis Boulevard and Las Vegas Boulevard North, according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Patricia Heldt.

A 2020 Nissan Altima was driving on Las Vegas Boulevard approaching Nellis when a Las Vegas man started crossing the street in a marked crosswalk but did not obey the “walk, don’t walk sign,” according to police.

The man was struck by the Nissan and died at the scene.

The Clark County coroner’s office identified the man as 23-year-old Yobany Bautista.

Impairment was not believed to be a factor in the crash.

No further information was available.
