A pedestrian died Tuesday night after a crash in northeast Las Vegas.
Police were called to North Nellis Boulevard and East Judson Avenue at 9:44 p.m. after a car crash involving a pedestrian, according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon.
The pedestrian was collecting scrap metal from the road at the intersection, according to a preliminary report issued early Wednesday by Metro’s Fatal Accident Detail.
The report said the pedestrian was not in a crosswalk when he was struck by a 2005 Hyundai SUV that was headed south on Nellis. The pedestrian was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The 55-year-old driver did not appear impaired and remained at the scene. Excessive speed did not appear to be a factor, the report stated.
The death was the 60th traffic-related fatality in Metro’s jurisdiction in 2020.
The Clark County coroner will release the identity of the pedestrian after relatives have been notified.
