The Metropolitan Police Department is assisting the North Las Vegas police in the investigation of a fatal auto-versus-pedestrian collision Friday night in North Las Vegas.
The collision occurred just before 5 p.m. at the intersection of West Craig and Bravita roads, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Grant Rogers said. He confirmed that the pedestrian died.
A dark-colored Honda Accord struck a Hispanic man who was jaywalking, Rogers said. Police say the man was 43.
The driver was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, according to police. The driver was not charged or cited, Rogers said.
Metro is taking the lead on the investigation, North Las Vegas police said.
“Las Vegas police are primary on this event to help our agency because of the officer-involved crash from earlier today,” North Las Vegas police spokesman Aaron Patty said.
Eastbound and westbound lanes of Craig Road between Valley Drive and Allen Lane are closed for the investigation.
No further information was immediately available.
