LAS VEGAS -- A 60-year-old man is dead after a vehicle struck him near Sunrise Hospital on Christmas Eve.

The man was crossing Maryland Parkway north of Desert Inn Road, when a Nissan Quest hit him. The victim was not in a designated crosswalk at the time of the accident. He died before crews could transport him to the hospital.

Police arrested the driver of the Nissan, 21-year-old Arnoldo Perez, for Driving Under the Influence. Neither Perez nor the passenger in his vehicle sustained major injuries.

This was the 110th fatal accident in Metro Police's jurisdiction this year. The Clark County Coroner's Office will identify the victim once next of kin have been notified.
