LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas police have arrested the driver in a deadly hit-and-run crash involving a bicyclist in the east valley.

According to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the bicyclist was attempting to cross Charleston Boulevard near Sandhill Road when he went onto the median, lost control, and entered the travel lane colliding with the rear portion of the semi-truck’s trailer. The bicyclist was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the crash was reported around 6:51 a.m. and the tractor-truck did not stay at the scene. Police were able to contact the driver who returned to the scene.

The driver was at fault in the crash and did not show signs of impairment, police stated.

However, because the semi-truck driver initially left the scene of the crash, he was arrested for hit-and-run with death, police later said Friday afternoon.

Charleston Boulevard was closed in both directions from Oahu Street to Sandhill Road for several hours while police investigated the crash scene.

This is the 101st traffic-related fatality in Metro’s jurisdiction in 2022.
