LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Nevada Highway Patrol (NHP) is looking for a vehicle involved in a deadly hit-and-run crash early Saturday morning.

It happened on US-95 at the Boulder Highway southbound off ramp around 2 a.m.

The agency says a silver or grey, older model sedan was traveling southbound on the US-95/Boulder Highway off ramp approaching Boulder Highway.

At the same time, NHP says a man, identified by the Coroner’s Office as Edward John Garcia, 66, was crossing the ramp northbound directly in front of the sedan.

Witnesses told NHP the vehicle ran the red light and struck Garcia, who was within the marked crosswalk.

Video surveillance shows the vehicle fleeing the scene without stopping and continuing east on Lamb from Boulder Highway with a broken right headlamp and front-end damage.

Garcia was transported to Sunrise Hospital and later pronounced dead. This crash remains under investigation.
