Woman dies after being hit by car on West Flamingo

Updated April 21, 2017 - 2:22 am

A woman died after she was hit by a car in the central Las Vegas Valley Thursday night.

She was crossing West Spring Mountain Road at South Stober Boulevard, near South Decatur Boulevard, about 10:30 p.m. when she was hit by a gray sedan, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Carlos Hank said. She died at University Medical Center.

Sgt. Paul McCullough said the woman was crossing Spring Mountain outside of a marked sidewalk. She stopped in the middle of the road, where she was hit.

He said the woman was in her late 50s and the driver was a man in his late 20s.

Alcohol and speed didn’t appear to play roles in the crash.

McCullough said the driver wouldn’t be cited or charged. He said the driver didn’t see the woman until after he hit her.

The Clark County coroner’s office will identify the woman once her family is notified.
