A pedestrian died Monday morning after being struck by a vehicle near UNLV.
Las Vegas police responded to a call about 2:35 a.m. of a vehicle-pedestrian accident on Tropicana Avenue, between Wilbur Street and Maryland Parkway, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon said.
The driver of a 1999 Ford SUV was traveling west on Tropicana when a male pedestrian in the roadway was struck, Metro said. The 31-year-old pedestrian had been walking outside of a marked crosswalk.
He died later at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, Metro said.
The Clark County coroner’s office will release his identity and cause and manner of death once family has been notified.
Police said the driver showed no signs of impairment; no arrests have been made.
This is the 72nd traffic-related fatality investigated by Metro in 2017.
