LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- An elderly man was struck and killed in the north Las Vegas Valley on Tuesday afternoon.
The incident happened about 1:53 p.m. in front of the WinCo Foods at 6101 N. Decatur Blvd. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department responded to the scene.
LVMPD Traffic Capt. Jason Letkiewicz said an armored truck was stopped in front of the store for the passenger to go in and get something.
When the passenger returned, Letkiewicz said the truck drove eastbound in the parking lot and came in contact with an 87-year-old man who was using a store-provided motorized cart.
In a press release, police said the motorized cart left the sidewalk into the parking lot and in front of the truck as it began to pull forward. The two collided and the man was severely injured.
Bystanders attempted to gain the 25-year-old driver's attention to stop the vehicle. The man died soon after at UMC.
This was the 101st fatal traffic-related incident for LVMPD in 2019.
