A pedestrian killed Wednesday in an east valley crash has been identified.

He was Peter Edward Davila, 54, of Las Vegas, the Clark County coroner’s office said. His death was ruled an accident.

Officers responded about 5:10 p.m. to the two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Vegas Valley and Cabana drives, near Nellis Boulevard, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Ken Romane said.

Witnesses told police a Chrysler PT Cruiser was turning left from westbound Vegas Valley onto Cabana when it crossed in front of a Chevrolet Silverado traveling east, police said.

After the two vehicles collided, the Silverado was redirected onto the southeast corner of the intersection, police said. The Silverado struck Davila, who was standing on the sidewalk. He died at the scene.

A third car was hit by debris.

The occupants of both vehicles suffered minor injuries, police said.

The drivers stayed on scene and cooperated with police.
