Traffic Accidents:

Pedestrian struck on U.S. 95 was hit by multiple vehicles

The Nevada Highway Patrol is still investigating the death of a man who reportedly ran onto U.S. 95 Sunday and was struck by multiple vehicles.

Just before noon Sunday, a man walked onto U.S. 95 near Lake Mead Boulevard from the west and started heading eastbound across the lanes of traffic, according to a Nevada Highway Patrol release.

A red Ford pickup truck traveling southbound on U.S. 95 hit the pedestrian, who kept moving toward the median and entered the northbound lanes. The driver of a northbound gray Toyota Camry swerved to the right to avoid the man but struck him. The pedestrian kept moving, and a tan Chevrolet pickup truck also hit the man despite efforts to avoid him, according to Nevada Highway Patrol.

The pedestrian was transported to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 12:18 p.m.

The pedestrian has not been identified, and Nevada Highway Patrol continues to look into the incident.
