According to current statements, it appears that a 26-year-old man (unidentified at this time) was walking at the time. While reportedly in a crosswalk, authorities say the man was hit by a semi-truck. That semi-truck was said to be turning left off of Wendover Boulevard to go toward the interstate access road. After the collision, authorities allege the truck continued driving and left the scene.

Based on claims by officials to local media outlets, it appears that the victim may have been dragged from the point of impact to the interstate on-ramp. As a result, the victim was pronounced deceased on the scene. Some time following the crash, it appears Nevada State Police arrested the alleged runaway truck driver roughly 180 miles away near Battle Mountain. Potential charges and additional details are currently unconfirmed.
