LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say two pedestrians from Alabama have been struck and killed by a car while crossing a street in Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says the crash happened at about 9:15 p.m. Saturday. Police say two 52-year-old Mobile residents were walking across the street in an area not designated as a crosswalk when they were hit by a 2008 Honda Accord.

The man and woman were pronounced dead at a hospital. Their names are being withheld until their relatives can be notified.

The 22-year-old driver stayed at the scene.

The crash is under investigation.
