A pedestrian died after being struck Wednesday night in the central valley, Las Vegas police said.

About 8:20 p.m., a northbound Mercedes-Benz hit a man who was crossing North Decatur Boulevard near West Bonanza Road, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon. He died at University Medical Center.

Police said the man was not using a marked crosswalk. The 16-year-old driver of the Mercedes-Benz stayed at the scene and did not show signs of impairment.

Northbound Decatur was closed between Bonanza and Vermont Avenue while police investigated, but has since reopened.
