Authorities released the name of a 43-year-old pedestrian who died after being struck by a pick-up truck early Sunday.
The Clark County Coroner's office, though, did not disclose a cause or manner of death for 43-year-old Victorino Castro Martin Jr.
Police said the pedestrian was crossing Flamingo Road on foot from the north side to the south side, east of Euclid Street, not using a marked crosswalk.
According to witnesses, the pedestrian fell into the traffic lane after stepping off the median and was struck by a Nissan pick-up at 2:50 a.m.
The pedestrian was pronounced dead on the scene by responding medical personnel, according to Metro. This collision remains under investigation by the Accident Investigations Section.
This is the 55th traffic related fatality in LVMPD's jurisdiction in 2013.
