UPDATE JAN. 5: The death of 21-year-old Eduardo Osorio of Brazil is not being counted as a traffic-related fatality after Las Vegas police said the investigation discovered his death might not have been as a result of the crash. 

Police did not say what in the investigation made them change the ruling.


At 2:20 a.m. on Jan. 3, a car was involved in a hit-and-run crash with a pedestrian on East Flamingo Road, west of  Koval Lane. 

Evidence at the scene and witness statements indicate that a 21­-year-old man climbed on the hood of a black, four­-door Mercedes­ Benz. The Mercedes ­Benz accelerated and the man fell to the street.

The Mercedes ­Benz fled the scene after the crash. The man was transported to Sunrise Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries despite resuscitative efforts.
