A pedestrian was killed Friday morning while trying to cross Interstate 15 near the Las Vegas Strip.
The 28-year-old man, who the Nevada Highway Patrol said was walking across southbound I-15 near Tropicana Avenue for unknown reasons, was struck by a black Nissan Armada at about 5:20 a.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The woman driving the Nissan remained at the scene, and trooper Jason Buratczuk said she did not show signs of impairment.
The three left lanes of the highway were closed during the investigation, causing major backups on the freeway before reopening shortly after 8 a.m.
The pedestrian will be identified by the Clark County coroner once his family has been notified.
