One killed, one arrested in fatal hit-and-run accident

A pedestrian was killed and another man was arrested Tuesday night after a hit-and-run accident in the southeast valley.

Las Vegas police said a man crossing Nellis Boulevard near Flamingo Road about 11 p.m. Tuesday was struck by a 1997 Nissan Altima. The man was not in a crosswalk and died at the scene.

The driver of the Nissan, 59-year-old Tomas Del-Angel, left the scene but was later located and arrested by police officers on suspicion of drunken driving.

Del-Angel was booked at Clark County Detention Center.

This was the 52nd fatal traffic accident in Las Vegas jurisdiction this year.
