Christina Hern was struck by a 2018 BMX X5 about 9:55 p.m. March 11 near Eastern and Rochelle avenues. On Thursday, Metro’s fatal detail was notified that Hern died of her injuries March 13, according to a news release from the department.
Hern’s death was ruled an accident, the Clark County coroner’s office said Thursday.
Investigators determined that Hern was struck while standing on a raised median in Eastern Avenue outside of a marked crosswalk, police said.
“The pedestrian entered the path of the BMW, and the front of the BMW struck the pedestrian, police said.
Hern died after she was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center. She was suspected of being impaired at the time of the crash “due to evidence located at the scene,” police said.
The 20-year-old man driving the BMW remained at the scene and was not suspected of being impaired.
