Coroner identifies pedestrian killed in weekend collision

The Clark County Coroner’s Office has identified a pedestrian fatally struck by two vehicles while crossing West Lake Mead Boulevard on Sunday as 59-year-old Timothy McGhie of Las Vegas.

Metro Police responded at 8:42 p.m. to the incident west of the intersection of Lake Mead Boulevard and Valley Drive. Police said McGhie was crossing Lake Mead Boulevard from south to north outside of a marked crosswalk when the collision occurred.

Investigators said a 1991 Ford Explorer was westbound on Lake Mead Boulevard in the left lane when it struck the man. After the impact, police said a white sport utility vehicle struck McGhie, then left the scene before medical personnel arrived.

McGhie was pronounced dead at the scene. The coroner’s office said he died of multiple injuries as a result of the collision.

The occupants of the Explorer, which did stop after the incident, were identified as the driver, Karl Joshua, 46, of Las Vegas, and passenger Ja'Varcus Joshua, 18, of North Las Vegas. Police said neither man was injured.

Anyone with information about the white SUV is being asked to call Crime Stoppers at 385‐5555 or Metro detective Mike Laythorpe at 828‐3342. This is the 37th traffic-related fatality this year in Metro's jurisdiction.
