Las Vegas police are investigating a crash involving a truck and a pedestrian that occurred at South 6th Street and East Sahara Ave on Monday evening.

The pedestrian had been jaywalking, according to investigators.  The man was taken to Sunrise Trauma where he was pronounced deceased.

Police say the driver of the truck is fully cooperating.  They do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor.

We were originally informed by police that it was a motorcycle rider involved in the collision, but they have since corrected that information. 

The identity of the deceased has not been released.
