Henderson, Nev. – The Henderson Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in connection with a pedestrian hit-and-run last night that left a woman dead.

At approximately 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, officers responded to the intersection of East Galleria Drive and Ward Drive where they located a female lying on the road. The investigation revealed the woman was struck while walking across East Galleria Drive. The driver fled the scene of the collision without stopping to render any assistance and did not call 9-1-1.

The female victim was transported to Sunrise Hospital where she later succumbed to her injuries. 

The hit-and-run vehicle is described as a gray or silver, 2004-2007 Dodge Caravan or Chrysler Town and Country. The vehicle potentially sustained damage to the front and front passenger side.

The roadway was closed for about three hours while traffic investigators conducted their investigation.

The name of the victim will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office after identification and next of kin notification.

This is Henderson’s first traffic related fatality investigated in 2018.
