LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Police say a 21-year-old female pedestrian is dead after a crash happened Saturday night near the Premium Outlet Mall.
Metro responded just before 5 p.m. to the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Grand Central Parkway. Two vehicles, police say, were involved.
According to Metro, a Prius was traveling northbound on Grand Central Parkway when the driver failed to stop at a red traffic light and entered the intersection. A pickup truck was traveling westbound on Charleston when it hit the right side of the Toyota and sent it turning clockwise when it hit the pedestrian, who was in the roadway.
Evidence shows that the 21-year-old woman was crossing eastbound across Grand Central in a marked crosswalk when she was struck by the Toyota.
Police say the driver remained on scene and did not show any signs of impairment.
The 21-year-old pedestrian was transported to UMC Trauma but succumbed to her injuries. Her identity will be later released by the Clark County Coroner’s office.
This is the 19th traffic-related fatality in Metro’s jurisdiction for 2020.
