Early Saturday morning, a man in his 50s or 60s was killed in a hit-and-run accident in the northeast Las Vegas valley.

Upon arrival, medical personnel declared the man dead. Investigation revealed that the man was outside of a marked crosswalk when he was struck by a vehicle, which failed to remain at the scene and the driver failed to call the police.
