LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Police are looking for a car that they say hit a 15-year-old boy who was crossing the street in southwest Las Vegas and then drove off. The teen was pronounced dead at the hospital.

The crash happened shortly after 7:45 p.m. on Friday near Durango Drive and Robindale Road, near Warm Springs Road.

Police say the boy was crossing the street with another person against the pedestrian traffic signal and stepped into the path of a red Dodge Charger.

The Charger did not stay at the scene and kept driving, police say. It was last seen traveling northbound on Durango.

The boy's identity will be released at a later date by the coroner's office. His death marks the 94th traffic-related death for the year 2021 in Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's jurisdiction.
