A pedestrian was struck by a truck and gravely injured early Thursday in south Las Vegas.
Las Vegas police Lt. Daryl Rhoads said police closed the intersection of West Sunset Road and South Valley View Boulevard for the 4:36 a.m. crash. Rhoads said a truck was eastbound on Sunset at Valley View with a green light when it “hit a subject in the roadway.”
The truck had a U.S. Postal Service logo. It was observed stopped in the middle of the intersection. Articles of clothing were also observed in the roadway.
The pedestrian was taken to a hospital and initially described as being in critical condition. Police said later they were awaiting an update on the individual’s condition.
