A pedestrian who was killed Friday evening after a vehicle struck him in the eastern Las Vegas Valley has been identified.

Donald Lester Buskey, 64, died of blunt-force injuries, the Clark County coroner said; his death was ruled an accident.

The Metropolitan Police Department said the crash happened just before 6 p.m. Friday at Boulder Highway and South Nellis Boulevard. Buskey, who was crossing Boulder Highway outside of a crosswalk, was struck by a 2002 Toyota Corolla that was heading north.

He was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, where he died, police said.

The 55-year-old woman driving the car remained at the scene and showed no signs of impairment, Metro Lt. Patricia Cervantes said.

Buskey’s death marked the 114th traffic-related fatality investigated by Metro in 2017.
