A pedestrian died after after being hit by three vehicles in the central Las Vegas Valley on Tuesday night, police said.

Police were called just before 8:30 p.m. to the crash at East Flamingo Road west of Burnham Avenue, near Desert Springs Hospital Medical Center, said Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon. The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene, he said.

Flamingo road was closed in both directions between Burnham Avenue and Spencer Street, according to a tweet from the Regional Transportation Commission.

Gordon said about 9 p.m. Tuesday that drivers should expect road closures and lane restrictions in the area for at least four hours. The roads have since reopened.

The pedestrian was crossing Flamingo outside of a marked crosswalk when he was struck by a 2014 Honda. The pedestrian was knocked to the ground, landing in the left lane in front of a 2016 Kia, according to release from police.

The front of the Kia struck the pedestrian. The driver of a 2006 Honda, which was behind the Kia, was unable to avoid hitting the pedestrian, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

All the drivers stayed at the scene and none showed signs of impairment.

The pedestrian will be identified by the Clark County coroner’s office.
