Pedestrian hit and killed crossing Boulder Highway

A 56-year-old man was hit and killed by a car late Tuesday night while attempting to cross Boulder Highway, Henderson Police said.

The man was hit about 11:10 p.m. near the intersection of Boulder Highway and Major Avenue, police said. A 2007 Chevrolet sedan was headed south on Boulder Highway and was passing through the intersection on a green light when it hit the man, police said.

The pedestrian died at the scene. It is unclear whether he was in a crosswalk, police said.

The 35-year-old female driver voluntarily submitted to blood testing and did not appear to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, police said. Speed also does not appear to be a factor in the crash, police said.

The incident remains under investigation.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office will conduct a toxicology test on the pedestrian and will release his name after his family has been notified.

Tuesday’s accident resulted in the 14th traffic fatality in Henderson this year.
