LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified 50-year-old man struck by a car and killed in Las Vegas while apparently walking outside of a crosswalk.
The Clark County coroner's office says James Bergstraesser died in the crash about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
Las Vegas police say Bergstraesser was crossing Flamingo Road west of Jones Boulevard when he was struck by a 1997 Infiniti.
He was taken to the hospital and later pronounced dead.
