LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County Coroner identified Alma Esmeralda Almaguer, 46, as the woman who was hit and killed by a pickup truck early Sunday morning. Her death was ruled accidental, caused by blunt force injuries.
The incident happened early Sunday morning around 3:43 at South Decatur and Washington Avenue in the central valley.
Almaguer, police say, was hit by a Ford F-150 as she was crossing eastbound on Decatur against a “do not walk” symbol. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the Ford remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation. Police do not suspect impairment to be a factor in this crash.
Almaguer’s death marks the 62nd traffic-related fatality in LVMPD’s jurisdiction for this year.
