A 74-year-old woman was struck by a car and killed Thursday morning near the Las Vegas Strip.
The accident occurred about 1:30 a.m. at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval Lane. Police said a Ford Explorer was traveling east in the center lane, and entered the intersection on a green light.
The woman, who was from Las Vegas, was walking from the north side of the street to the south side in a marked crosswalk on Koval Lane. Although witnesses told police the driver tried to slow down when he saw her, the vehicle struck the woman. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the vehicle was 27-year-old Paul Davis of Las Vegas.
The name of the deceased will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office pending notification of her family.
