LAS VEGAS (KXNT/AP) — Police say a 52-year-old man who was running across a Las Vegas street during a rainstorm has died after being hit by a SUV.

Authorities say the crash happened a little after 9 p.m. Sunday on Boulder Highway near Desert Inn road.

Investigators say the man was running across the road in a crosswalk but against a red signal when an SUV that had a green or yellow light struck him.

The man was taken to Sunrise Hospital and later pronounced dead.

His identity has not yet been released.

This is the 41st traffic-related fatality in Metro’s jurisdiction in 2014.
