A man was struck and killed by a commercial bus this morning in North Las Vegas.

North Las Vegas Police said the accident happened about 5:30 a.m. in the 1800 block of West Cheyenne Avenue, near Scott Robinson Boulevard.

A preliminary investigation indicates the bus was traveling west on Cheyenne when traffic slowed abruptly. The bus swerved into an adjacent lane to miss the cars in front of it, and struck a pedestrian crossing the street, police spokeswoman Chrissie Coon said.

The man died at the scene.

He was not in a marked crosswalk, Coon said.
