Updated January 10, 2019 - 8:22 am

A 46-year-old man is dead after being struck by a vehicle near downtown Las Vegas on Wednesday night.

The man was in a marked crosswalk about 11:10 p.m. on East Bonanza Road and D Street when he was struck by a 2013 Kia Forte that had a green light, according to the Metropolitan Police Department. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver, another 46-year-old man, was not suspected of impairment and is cooperating with police.

The pedestrian will be identified by the Clark County coroner’s office once his family has been notified of his death, which was the third traffic-related death investigated by the Metro this year.
