LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Nevada Highway Patrol was investigating a fatal crash involving a pedestrian on Monday night. 

About 9:28 p.m. on Nov. 1, the agency said it was responding to the crash on I-15 southbound south of Sahara Avenue. 

Trooper Travis Smaka with NHP said a man was crossing southbound I-15 from west to east when he was hit in the HOV lane. He was then thrown into another lane where he was hit at least once more. 

The man was pronounced dead on scene. He was later identified as 43-year-old Theodore Leon Boothe from Las Vegas.

All but one lane were shut down for the investigation. Avoid the route Monday night or expect heavy delays.
