LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A man is dead after being hit by a construction vehicle in North Las Vegas Tuesday, police say.
Investigators say the crash, reported at the intersection of Cheyenne Avenue and Simmons Street in North Las Vegas, occurred at 6:50 a.m. between a construction vehicle and a man believed to be in his 50s. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Investigators say the “box-style construction vehicle” traveling east on Cheyenne Avenue had a green light. The man was crossing in a marked crosswalk with a “don’t walk” signal, police say. The construction vehicle was not able to stop and hit the man.
The driver cooperated with officers, and speed, impairment, or weather do not appear to be a factor in the incident, investigators say.
