A woman was fatally struck by a vehicle in North Las Vegas Thursday night.

At around 6:30 p.m. a woman was crossing the street on Englestad Street across West Lake Mead Boulevard when she was hit by a vehicle. She died at the scene, according to North Las Vegas Police Department spokesman Brian Thomas.

The Clark County coroner’s office on Friday identified the woman as 56-year-old Beverly Kent. She died from blunt force injuries.
