A motor vehicle pedestrian accident fatally injured a woman Friday afternoon, February 21, 2020.
As reported by News3LV.com, “the crash occurred just before 5:00 p.m. at Charleston Boulevard and Grand Central Parkway, just east of I-15.”
ReviewJournal.com is reporting, “the preliminary investigation indicated the woman was walking east across Charleston inside a crosswalk as a 2012 Chevrolet Silverado truck began to cross westbound Charleston. At that time, a taxi heading north on Grand Central, ran a red light and collided with the truck, which sent the cab, a 2018 Toyota Prius, spinning and caused it to strike the pedestrian.”
According to the report, “[t]he woman was pronounced dead by medical staff at University Medical Center.”
The investigation is ongoing.
