SPARKS, Nev. ( & KRNV) -- The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a deadly collision involving a vehicle and pedestrian on Wednesday.

According to NHP, the crash happened at the crosswalk of McCarran and Nichols Boulevard, right in front of Sierra Sid's Casino. Troopers say the pedestrian, a 38-year-old Sparks resident, was trying to beat the crosswalk timer, but failed and was hit by a car that had the right of way.

The driver is fully cooperating with the investigation and does not face any charges at this time. The name of the victim has not been released.

Marisol. It's unfortunate that someone has died here. Your posting tells me you may not be well educated on state law, based on your inability to make a grammatically correct sentence. Your reference to the requirements for taking a license away is incorrect. Think about what you post and try again next time.

Sit in the left turn lane at Victorian and feel the swoosh! that leadfoot drivers make as they careen off the RR overpass and into this dense mixed-use neighborhood. By the way, Nv4 this crosswalk is on the NW corner, not 'in front of' Sierra Sids.

Freedomrings I agree with you vehicular homicide this state and the cops has got some serious issues. Some body has to do something about it my godson dad was kill last year and the person won't face charges because he was not drug or drunk. Be here is something interesting the Reno city attorney said they won't take this guy drivers licence untill he has kill a total of 3 people. This is the state we are living in.
