A 17-year-old died after being run over by a semitrailer while crossing Spring Mountain Road on foot Monday.

The Clark County coroner’s office identified him as Alexis Gomez Bautista of Las Vegas.

According to police reports, Bautista was crossing Spring Mountain at Wynn Road from the northwest corner in a marked crosswalk around 5 p.m. when he was crushed by the rear tires of the trailer as it made a right turn from Wynn onto westbound Spring Mountain.

He was taken to University Medical Center, where he died a short time later.

The 36-year-old driver of the semitrailer remained at the scene and was not charged by Las Vegas police.

This was the 34th traffic related fatality in Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s jurisdiction in 2013.
