Pedestrian Killed in Morning Crash in Las Vegas

January 4, 2018 | Filed under: Pedestrian Accident, Wrongful Death

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police recorded the first traffic-related fatality of 2018 when a pedestrian from Brazil was killed after he jumped onto the hood of a Mercedes-Benz and fell off just west of the Stripe early Wednesday morning, Jan. 3rd. According to Metro police and initial witness testimony, the incident occurred around 2:20 a.m. when the 21-year old Brazilian pedestrian was entering the westbound lanes of Flamingo Road when a black 4-door Mercedes-Benz was turning right from southbound Koval Lane.

The pedestrian then climbed on top of the Mercedes-Benz hood. The vehicle proceeded to accelerate westward causing the pedestrian to fall to the road. Metro Police say they are trying to identify the driver of a Mercedes-Benz who did not remain at the scene and report the incident to police.

The pedestrian was taken by ambulance to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center where despite resuscitative efforts the pedestrian succumbed to his injuries and was later pronounced dead by medical staff. He has been identified as a 21-year-old man from Brazil. His official ID will come from the Clark County Coroner, pending next-of-kin notification.

Alfredo Garcia is the operations manager at the Port of Subs inside the Jay’s Market located at the intersection where the collision happened. Garcia told investigators his employee went to the scene and was able to identify the man as a homeless person who frequented the store often. “He’s been in and out of our store. People used to buy him sandwiches.”

“[An employee] called me saying he heard a screeching noise,” Garcia said. “He heard screeching; he looked up and realized someone got hit.” Garcia also showed investigators surveillance video of what appears to be the 21-year old running into the street. Garcia said he could not find the Mercedes-Benz in his surveillance video but noticed a silver sedan turn into the parking lot of Jay’s Marketplace, stop for a few seconds, then turn back out of the lot. “I think the car was silver, not black,” Garcia said. Police said they received the information about the black Mercedes from initial witness reports but the investigation is early and some details could change. “It’s just sad that it happened. It’s just so crazy,” Garcia said.
