A 71-year-old man died after he was hit by a vehicle in the southeast valley Tuesday night.
Officers with Metropolitan Police Department determined a 2016 Lexus sport utility vehicle was southbound on Boulder Highway when it hit a man in the roadway at East Desert Inn Road, police said in a statement.
The crash was reported about 7:25 p.m., Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Steve Summers said.
Police didn’t know whether the unidentified man was crossing against a red light. The Lexus’ driver remained on scene and didn’t appear impaired. Besides the driver, there were three children 10 and younger in the Lexus.
The deceased will be identified by the Clark County coroner’s office after his family is notified. This marks the 120th traffic death in Metro’s jurisdiction this year.
