A Las Vegas man driving a pickup truck that struck and killed a 63-year-old pedestrian Sunday night was arrested on a count of driving under the influence, Metro Police said.

David Majcher, 26, was driving a 1999 Chevrolet pickup eastbound on Spring Mountain Road near Hauck Street about 9:45 p.m. Sunday when he struck a 63-year-old man standing in the road, police said.

The man, who was not identified by Metro, was transported to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Majcher was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center on counts of driving under the influence and operating a vehicle without registration, officials said. He is scheduled to appear in court at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Sunday’s incident resulted in the 48th traffic-related fatality in Metro’s jurisdiction this year.

  1. We need guys like this taken off the roads. He obviously doesn't care about anyone else and thumbs his nose at basic rules and regulations. There is no acceptable excuse for driving drunk and it's about time newspapers, politicians and the entertainment media quit glamourizing the poisonous substance known as alcohol.
