Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The 31-year-old male from Florida who was hit by a truck at 4:30 a.m. near the Las Vegas Motor Speedway on the final day of the Electric Daisy Carnival has passed away at University Medical Center after spending a week in critical condition.
Nevada Highway Patrol was notified of his passing just after 1 p.m. Saturday.
According to Trooper Loy Hixson of the Nevada Highway Patrol, the man was attempting to cross Las Vegas Boulevard when a 67-year-old woman from Mesquite hit him in the southbound lanes.
The driver stayed on the scene and is not suspected of drinking or speeding. The driver is not being charged, according to NHP, as it was all pedestrian failure. There were no crosswalks in the area.
NHP told Action News the pedestrian had been drinking at the carnival.
A young woman also died earlier in the week after jumping from her hotel room at Circus Circus.
The 22-year-old Arizona girl's family tells the Review Journal that she had taken Ecstasy at EDC and was suffering extreme hallucinations.
