Henderson, Nev. – Henderson Police are investigating a traffic collision that occurred last night resulting in a pedestrian succumbing to his injuries.
On August 16, at approximately 10:15 p.m., Henderson Police responded to calls in reference to a pedestrian versus vehicle collision on Warm Springs Road east of Heavenly View Drive. Preliminary information obtained at the scene indicated the driver of a 2003 Ford F-150 was travelling east on Warm Springs Road in the left travel lane. The male pedestrian was crossing Warm Springs Road from south to north outside of any designated crosswalk and not in an intersection. The pedestrian was wearing dark clothing and crossed in the path of the Ford. The driver of the Ford did not see the pedestrian in time and the pedestrian was struck.
The pedestrian was transported to Sunrise Hospital Trauma Center in Las Vegas in critical condition where he later succumbed to his injuries.
During initial investigation, it does not appear that speed or alcohol were factors and the driver of the Ford F-150 remained at the scene and has been cooperative with the investigation.
Eastbound Warm Springs Road was closed from Heavenly View Drive to Green Valley Parkway for approximately three and half hours while fatal accident investigators conducted their investigation.
The name of the pedestrian who succumbed to his injuries will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office after next of kin notifications.
The crash is being investigated as the seventh related fatality this year.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to call the Henderson Police Department at 702-267-4911, 3-1-1, or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or visit Crime Stoppers website.
