Authorities released the name of a 63-year-old Las Vegas man who was fatally struck by two vehicles while crossing Boulder Highway.

According to the Clark County Coroner's office, Charles Leo Grazier died of blunt force injuries of the head after being struck Tuesday night by a work van and, then, by a pick-up truck on Boulder Highway near Lamb Boulevard.

The Coroner's office also ruled the death as an accident.
