LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas police are investigating a deadly crash in the southeast part of the valley.

Witnesses tell police that someone was running across the street outside of a marked crosswalk before they were hit by a vehicle shortly before 6 p.m. on Thursday.

That person was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, where police say they have since died. Their identity and cause of death will be released at a later time by the coroner's office.

Shortly before midnight on Friday, Boulder Highway reopened between Harmon and Tropicana avenues following an hours-long closure as police investigated the crash.
