LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas police said they're looking for information on a deadly crash from June 7.

Police said about 9:43 p.m., dispatch was called about a man who was hit by a black Volvo sedan on the 200 block of Newport Mission Lane, near Decatur Boulevard and U.S. 95.

The man was taken to UMC where he was pronounced dead. The Clark County Coroner's Office later identified him as 36-year-old Tramaine Anthony Porter, and his cause and manner of death were still pending.
