Woman dies after she was hit by car in Henderson

A woman died Thursday night after being struck by a car in Henderson, police said.

Officers were called at about 7 p.m. to the crash, on Wigwam Parkway west of Green Valley Parkway, after reports of a pedestrian hit by a car, said Henderson Police Department spokesman Rod Pena.

Police believe that the woman was crossing Wigwam Parkway when she was struck by the car, Pena said. She died at the scene, he said.

“The driver did not see the pedestrian,” said Pena, who described the victim as “elderly.”

The car’s driver remained at the scene and was cooperating with police, he said. It did not appear that impairment or speed was a factor in the crash.

The woman will be identified by the Clark County coroner’s office after her family has been notified.

This is a horrible incident, and our thoughts go out to the injured victim and the family. One hopes the families of these victims carried Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist coverage on their vehicle(s), as this coverage actually protects you and any family members living in your household in the event of a motor vehicle collision, whether in a car, on a bike, or walking as a pedestrian.
