A pedestrian who was struck and killed by a vehicle in the east Las Vegas Valley on Wednesday night has been identified.

Las Vegas police said the victim, identified Friday by the Clark County coroner’s office as Virgilio P. Nacionales, 73, of Las Vegas, was crossing Pecos Road outside of a crosswalk when he was struck by a 2007 BMW 3 Series headed south on Pecos, just south of Tropicana Avenue, at about 6 p.m. Nacionales was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. Police were notified Thursday that Nacionales had died.

His death was ruled an accident, the coroner’s office said Friday.

The BMW’s driver remained at the scene and did not show signs of impairment, police said. The Nacionales’ death marked the second traffic-related fatality investigated by Metro this year.
