The Clark County Coroner has identified a pedestrian who was struck and killed by a car on Jan. 5 in Las Vegas as Brian Edward Vangorder, 48, of Las Vegas.
His cause of death was ruled a result of multiple injuries caused by a strike from a motor vehicle.
Police said that at about 6:17 p.m. the Vangorder was walking on Warm Springs Road near S. Hinson Street when he was hit by a 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser.
Vangorder was not in a crosswalk when he was struck and the driver remained at the scene.
This marked the second deadly traffic accident in Metro's jurisdiction so far in 2013.
