Two Henderson pedestrians hit; one dies

Two pedestrians were struck by vehicles in separate incidents Thursday on Boulder Highway, and one of them died, Henderson police said.

City of Henderson spokeswoman Kathleen Richards said a 27-year-old woman was crossing Boulder Highway just north of Lake Mead Parkway when she was struck by a vehicle and killed.

Richards said the woman was crossing at Lowrey Street in a marked crosswalk, and that cars in other lanes had already yielded to her when a Jeep driven by an 84-year-old man drove into the crosswalk and hit her.

Speed did not appear to be a factor in the crash.

The woman’s identity will be released by the Clark County coroner’s office after her family has been notified. Her death is Henderson’s second pedestrian death this year and the sixth traffic-related death.

At 3 p.m. a man was walking on the shoulder of Boulder Highway, just a few miles north of the first incident, when he stepped in front of a Republic Services garbage truck near Sunset Road, Richards said.

The man was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in critical condition.
