Posted: Updated:

NORTH LAS VEGAS -- The 18-year-old pedestrian who was struck by a car and died has been identified by the Clark County Coroner as Jesse Hill.

Hill was walking with a 16-year-old girl on a sidewalk when they were both struck by a car driven by 19-year-old Cristian Diaz, North Las Vegas Police said. Hill and the girl were hit on Gliding Eagle Road on Tuesday. The girl remains hospitalized in critical condition.

Diaz, 19, was arrested Wednesday on failure to maintain a travel lane and failure to obtain a Nevada driver's license. His passenger, Ricardo Velasquez, 18, faces charges for possession of marijuana and destruction of evidence.

Police said Diaz will likely face additional charges in the case.
