A 49-year-old pedestrian died from injuries suffered in a crash Thursday after being struck by a car at the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Pecos Road, police said.
Investigators said a 2006 blue Ford Mustang was traveling east on Charleston when it struck the man about 12:14 p.m. The Mustang was approaching Pecos Road with a green traffic signal when the man was walking south across Charleston from the northwest corner of the intersection, police said.
The man wasn’t in a marked crosswalk and was crossing against a traffic signal, police said. He was taken to University Medical Center and was pronounced dead upon arrival.
The Clark County Coroner’s Office will release the man’s identity and cause of death after notifying family members.
Police said the driver of the Mustang, identified as 24-year-old Curtis Henderson, remained at the scene after the collision. He wasn’t injured. Police had initially reported the accident was a hit-and-run crash, but said in a report this afternoon that the driver stayed at the scene.
This is the 39th fatal traffic collision in Metro’s jurisdiction this year. All southbound lanes on Pecos Street were closed while authorities investigated.
