A man who had been hit by a vehicle Monday after attending the Electric Daisy Carnival died about 1 p.m. Saturday at University Medical Center as a result of his injuries, according to Nevada Highway Patrol officials.

Emergency responders said the 31-year-old Florida man and two friends were crossing Las Vegas Boulevard near gate six at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway at 4:31 a.m. on Monday. They had been attending EDC and the man had been drinking, officials said.

That’s when the truck, driven by a 61 year-old woman from Mesquite, struck the man, who did not cross on a designated crosswalk, officials said. The woman was not attending EDC.

Officials said initial investigations found the accident to be a result of pedestrian error.
