Updated November 19, 2022 - 11:43 pm

A man riding a scooter crashed and was then fatally struck by vehicles in North Las Vegas on Saturday night.

The crash occurred around 8:30 p.m. near the 3100 block of West Cheyenne Avenue.

Thomas James Jr. Cordona, 53, died at the scene from blunt force trauma, said the Clark County Office of the Coroner.

Cordona was riding westbound on Cheyenne when he crashed in the roadway. He was then struck by multiple vehicles, according to North Las Vegas Police Department spokesman Alex Cuevas.

“At this time, it is believed that the deceased male may have been impaired at the time of his crash,” Cuevas said.

Impairment was not believed to be a factor in the vehicles hitting the scooter.

Cheyenne was closed from Simmons at the crash scene for the investigation, Cuevas said.
