Two Las Vegas pedestrians died in separate motor accidents on Monday night, Metro Police informs.
Police informed that the first accident occurred when an SUV hit a fifty-one-year-old man about 8:15 p.m. on Craig Road, near Jadestone Avenue.
Oscar Rios Ley, the sixty-eight-year-old driver, left the scene without helping the injured victim, who later passed away at University Medical Center, police said.
Ley returned later to the scene and was arrested for failure to render help at a vehicle accident, duty to stop at the scene of an accident, and failure to yield to a pedestrian. Impairment was not assumed, police said.
About an hour and a half later, police officers reacted to an accident at Desert Inn Road, where a car hit a thirty-nine-year-old woman who was running across the road, near Topaz Street.
The seventy-one-year-old motorist tried to avoid the pedestrian who was running next to the woman. The Las Vegas woman later died at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center.
The motorist was not hurt and stayed at the scene.
