Updated January 30, 2023 - 8:50 am

A pedestrian struck by a suspected impaired driver has died, the Metropolitan Police Department reported Saturday.

Sebion Clabaugh, 26, died at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center on Friday from injuries he suffered in a crash six days earlier.

At 5:53 p.m. on Jan. 21, the pedestrian was headed west on a sidewalk on South Nellis Boulevard, then walked onto the street and into path of a 2011 Hyundai Sonata moving south toward the intersection with East Charleston Boulevard, police said.

The front of the Hyundai collided with the pedestrian, police said.

A 27-year-old passenger in the car was not injured.

The driver of the Hyundai, Shermonique Batiste, 49, from Las Vegas, stayed behind at the scene, where police arrived and determined that she displayed signs of impairment from marijuana use, according to police.

Batiste, who was uninjured, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and booked into the county jail, according to police.

The crash remains under review by the department’s collision investigation section. It was the 11th traffic-related fatality in its jurisdiction so far in 2023, police reported.
