LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities in Las Vegas have identified a 31-year-old California man who was struck and killed by an SUV while crossing a road last weekend near an off-Strip casino.

The Clark County coroner says Vanharris K. Haiola of San Diego died of multiple injuries in the Saturday evening crash on Valley View Boulevard near the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino.

Police say Haiola wasn’t in a crosswalk when he was hit by a 2007 GMC Denali driven by 31-year-old Ryan Brizeno of Las Vegas.

Haiola was pronounced dead at University Medical Center.

Brizeno was questioned at the scene, and no immediate charges were filed.
