LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas Metropolitan police said an elderly man who was critically injured after being struck by a vehicle on Jan. 3 died from his injuries on Thursday.

The driver of a 2003 Mercury Grand Marquis, identified by police as Alan Pearson, 65, was heading south on Boulder Highway, according to police. Perez entered Pearson's path and was knocked to the ground after getting hit.

Pearson stayed at the scene and cooperated with officers, police said. He showed no signs of impairment.

This was Metro Police's fourth traffic-related fatality for 2019.
