Woman, 18, identified as pedestrian killed while jaywalking

The Clark County coroner’s office has identified the woman who was killed Monday night when she was struck by a truck in the eastern valley.

Jacquelynn Pope, 18, was crossing Charleston Boulevard outside of a crosswalk when a pickup truck hit her and dragged her through the intersection at Nellis Boulevard, Las Vegas police said. She died at the scene.

Police did not suspect impairment to be a factor in the crash.

Pope’s death marked the 84th traffic-related fatality in the Metropolitan Police Department’s jurisdiction this year.

An previous version of this story misspelled Pope’s last name.
