NORTH LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A man is dead after he tried to cross Craig Road outside of a marked crosswalk, according to North Las Vegas police.
It happened near the intersection of Craig and Losee Road in the northeast valley just before 9 p.m.
Police say the crash involved a white Chevrolet SUV and a male pedestrian between the ages of 50 and 65.
The pedestrian was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver and witnesses remained on the scene, and the driver is cooperating with police.
The preliminary investigation indicated a white Chevrolet SUV was traveling westbound on Craig approaching Losee. The pedestrian was trying to cross from the southwest corner to the northwest corner of the intersection. “The man crossed against a no walk signal about 10 feet outside of the crosswalk,” police said in an update on Thursday.
The man was struck by the SUV in the westbound travel lanes, police said.
Speed is not believed to be a factor. Police said the investigation is still open.
The Coroner’s Office will release the identity of the deceased, and the cause and manner of death, after proper notification to next of kin.
