NORTH LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- A man is dead following a hit-and-run crash Saturday morning in North Las Vegas.

Around 5:25 a.m., officers responded to a call of a collision at Cheyenne Avenue and Simmons Street.  When they arrived they found a man who had been ejected from a vehicle and was suffering from critical injuries.  Medical personnel transported him to University Medical Center where he later died.

The preliminary investigation indicates the man was driving a Dodge Dakota south on Simmons, when a GMC Yukon ran the red light traveling west on Cheyenne. The Yukon struck the Dakota and the man was ejected. The occupants of the Yukon fled the scene on foot and are still outstanding.

The family of the man in the Dakota identified him as 55-year-old Clay Stampley. A candlelight vigil is being held at 7 p.m. Sunday at the site of the crash.

"Just it's really hard just you know, just to try and accept him being gone," said his son, Clay Stampley Jr. "It's not believable. It just can't be. It's not reality right now. It's not reality right now. It's hard."

Stampley's cousin was upset for the two people who fled the scene of the crash.

"I feel that they were cowards for running. They were cowards," Veronica Dillard said. "And you left my cousin there just like an animal, a piece of garbage. That's how I feel that you just left my cousin there and he did not deserve that!"

This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with additional information regarding this case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
