Elderly woman dies after being hit by car in Summerlin

An 86-year-old woman crossing a street in Summerlin was struck by a car and killed Monday morning, according to Metro Police.

Officers were called near the intersection of Lake Mead and Rampart boulevards about 11 a.m. The elderly woman was crossing north across Lake Mead Boulevard — outside of a marked crosswalk — when a 2006 Chevrolet HHR exited a private drive on the north side, turned eastbound on Lake Mead Boulevard and struck the pedestrian, police said.

The 86-year-old Las Vegas woman was transported to University Medical Center, where she later died, police said. The driver of the Chevrolet — a 59-year-old Las Vegas man — did not have any injuries, police said.

The accident remains under investigation. This was the eighth traffic-related fatality in Metro's jurisdiction so far this year.
