1 pedestrian killed, 1 injured after being hit by car in southeast Las Vegas

One pedestrian died and another is in critical condition after a car hit both of them in the southeast valley Monday night.

The crash happened about 7:30 p.m. on North Boulder Highway at Sun Valley Drive, near Harmon Avenue, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon said.

A 27-year-old man northbound in a 2004 Lincoln on Boulder Highway struck the two men as they were in a crosswalk at the intersection. The driver and his passenger stayed at the scene.

A Metro release later said both pedestrians were taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. A 51-year-old man died and a 42-year-old man was in critical condition as of Tuesday morning.

It was unclear whether speed was a factor in the crash. The driver didn’t appear to be impaired, the release said.

The deceased man will be identified by the Clark County coroner’s office after his family is notified.
