LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified an 86-year-old woman who was fatally struck by a car while crossing a Las Vegas street.
Clark County coroner's officials say Ann Elizabeth Bursik died after being hit just before 11 a.m. Monday on Lake Mead Boulevard, east of Rampart Boulevard.
Witnesses say Bursik was crossing the street outside a crosswalk while a Chevy HHR was leaving a private driveway. Police say she was struck after the Chevy turned and entered a travel lane.
Bursik was taken to University Medical Center and later died of her injuries.
The 59-year-old driver of the Chevy was not injured.
The death marks the eighth traffic-related fatality in Las Vegas police jurisdiction this year.
