Updated February 24, 2023 - 9:09 am

A man died after being struck by two vehicles while walking in the middle of the road Thursday evening in North Las Vegas, according to the North Las Vegas Police Department.

NLVPD officers were patrolling the area of Martin Luther King Boulevard and Alexander Road just after 6 p.m. when they heard a loud crash, according to public information officer Brian Thomas. The officers then responded to the 4000 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard where they found a man lying in the middle of the road.

The Clark County coroner’s office ruled that Mervyn Robinson, 42, died at the scene. His cause and manner of death had not been determined as of Friday morning.

The NLVMPD Major Collision Investigation Unit later determined that Robinson had walked onto Martin Luther King Boulevard outside of a crosswalk when he was hit by an SUV and a sedan, according to Thomas. Both vehicles were traveling northbound on Martin Luther King when they struck the man.

The drivers of both vehicles remained on scene. Speed and impairment aren’t believed to be factors in either collision, Thomas said.
