North Las Vegas police said two pedestrians lost their lives in a crash when they were hit by a vehicle overnight Saturday.

Officers said the crash happened at about 12:30 a.m. on Pecos Road, near Las Vegas Boulevard, when a man and woman were struck by a sport utility vehicle when the SUV traveled onto the sidewalk.

The two pedestrians were transported to the University Medical Center after the collision, but were later pronounced deceased.

The incident remains under investigation according to the NLVPD.
