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.
