A pedestrian died Monday in Mesquite when he was hit by a car, the Nevada Highway Patrol said.
A Chevy “passenger car” struck and killed a 61-year-old man in the intersection of Mesa and East Pioneer boulevards, near the East Veterans Memorial Highway, Highway Patrol trooper Chelsea Stuenkel said.
The 78-year-old driver of the car sustained no injuries, Stuenkel said. The Highway Patrol does not suspect impairment as a factor.
The Clark County coroner’s office will release the decedent’s identity once next of kin have been notified.
