Woman hit, killed on Lake Mead Parkway ID'd

HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

A 39-year-old woman is dead after being struck by a car while attempting to cross Lake Mead Parkway on Saturday night.

Police say the woman was hit at about 9:15 p.m., when a Ford Expedition traveling westbound on Lake Mead Parkway was driving through the intersection at Taylor Street.

Witnesses say the woman was crossing the road in a marked crosswalk but was walking against the crosswalk signals.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the woman as Yvonne Harris from Henderson. Harris died from multiple blunt force trauma and her death was ruled and accident.

The driver of the Expedition voluntarily submitted to blood testing to determine if drugs or alcohol were a factor in the crash, according to police.

A preliminary investigation shows speed does not appear to be a factor in the crash.

This case remains under investigation by the Henderson Police Department.
