LAS VEGAS (AP) — A World Series of Poker dealer from Reno has been identified as a pedestrian struck and killed by a car in Las Vegas.

The Clark County Coroner's Office says 86-year-old Richard Turnbull was killed in the accident Thursday night in the Spring Valley area.

Police say a preliminary investigation shows he was crossing Rainbow Boulevard outside a marked crosswalk when he was hit. The 30-year-old male driver of the car escaped unharmed.

A spokesperson for the annual poker tournament in Las Vegas released a statement saying organizers and dealers were devastated to learn about Turnbull's death.

According to the statement, Turnbull was a World War II veteran who had been dealing poker for 38 years.

this crass 'report' needs a re-write. i mean, it begs to be poked fun at. the sloppy sentence structure of the headline suggests that the most important fact is that a dealer was killed. I thought it said "whusup", and all that. How about using "L.V. pedestrian fatality I.D.'d as Reno vetran". i'll spare U the jokes, try EDIT
