Person in Wheelchair Dies After Being Hit Near Cheyenne & Jones

LAS VEGAS, Nev. (Shook & Stone)

On Monday morning, a person in a wheelchair was struck and killed by a car.

The crash happened at 11:19 a.m on October 3 near Cheyenne and Rowland Avenues, not far from Jones Boulevard according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

According to authorities, a person in a motorized wheelchair was struck by a car. Police stated that it was unclear if the pedestrian was crossing at a signal when he or she was hit.

Unfortunately, the pedestrian died after being taken to a hospital nearby.

Once next of kin are notified, the Clark County Coroner’s Office will identify the victim.
