Pedestrian Killed Near Galleria Drive and Boulder Highway

Posted: Updated:

HENDERSON, Nev. - Henderson officials say a female pedestrian is dead after a vehicle struck her near Galleria Drive and Boulder Highway.

The accident happened shortly after 4:30 a.m. Police say the woman was crossing Boulder Highway outside a marked crosswalk, when the vehicle struck her.

The driver of the vehicle cooperated with police and was not cited. Police say the driver did not appear to be under the influence and speed did not appear to be a factor.

The Clark County Coroner's Office will identify the woman once next of kin have been notified.

Boulder Highway was closed for about four hours while officers investigated the crash.

This is the eighth fatal accident in Henderson's jurisdiction this year and the fourth involving a pedestrian.
