Two pedestrians were killed in separate incidents on Las Vegas Valley roadways Monday night.
In the first, a pedestrian crossing West Craig Road about 8:15 p.m. was struck by a vehicle in what Metropolitan police said was a hit-and-run.
The victim, Christopher D’Elia, 51, of Las Vegas, was crossing Craig at Jadestone Avenue when he was hit by a Chevy Blazer that did not stop, police said.
D’Elia was taken to University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
Police said Oscar Rios Ley, 68, of Las Vegas eventually returned to the scene of the crash and was arrested on hit-and-run charges. Impairment is not suspected.
In the second incident, police said two pedestrians were running across East Desert Inn Road at South Topaz Street about 10:45 p.m. A Volkswagen Passat driven by a 71-year-old Las Vegas man was traveling west on Desert Inn Road in the right lane when he swerved to miss the first pedestrian. The vehicle then struck the second pedestrian, Lisa Guglielmino, 39.
Emergency medical personnel transported Guglielmino to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center where she was pronounced dead, police said. The Clark County Coroner’s Office said a place of residence for Guglielmino is currently unknown.
Police were not able to identify the first pedestrian. The driver remained at the scene and did not display signs of impairment, police said.
The deaths were the 94th and 95th traffic-related fatalities in Las Vegas Metropolitan Police jurisdiction, according to news releases issued by police.
