Elderly man struck by several vehicles and killed in Spring Valley

A 71-year-old man tragically died after he was hit by two vehicles in a Spring Valley Intersection on Sunday night. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reported that the incident occurred around 8 p.m. at the intersection of Flamingo and Lindell roads. According to police, the man was crossing southbound in the marked crosswalk against a pedestrian signal when he entered the eastbound lanes of Flamingo Road and was hit by a 2015 Lexus IS250. The driver of the Lexus stopped and was rear-ended by a 2023 Hyundai Genesis GV70, redirecting the car to the right and running the pedestrian over. The man sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene. Neither driver or passengers were hurt.

Metro officials noted that impairment did not contribute to the crash, making it the 136th traffic-related fatality in LVMPD’s jurisdiction this year. The department’s Collision Investigation Section is still investigating the collision.

Help in a Crisis

Following a traumatic event, people often feel helpless, confused, and experience emotional shock. They are confronted with a situation for which they are totally unprepared.

Often there is no one available in the immediate aftermath of a tragedy to guide the victims through these difficult hours. The TIP volunteer provides this necessary temporary support until persons involved in the crisis are able to depend on family, friends, neighbors, and other resources in the community.
