A 57-year-old pedestrian is dead after being hit by a pickup in Reno.
Reno police say Orville Slenes of Reno was pronounced dead at
Washoe Medical Center following the daybreak accident (near
Military Road and Tulear Street) in the North Valleys area.
Sergeant Andy Kachurak says Slenes was crossing the intersection
outside a crosswalk and 50-year-old Kirk Dollarhide of Pahrump did
not see him.
Kachurak says alcohol was not a factor in the accident. The
investigation is continuing.
