Police arrived on a scene of a fatal truck accident in North Las Vegas on Friday morning. The crash happened at around 5:20 a.m. at Cheyenne Avenue and Bassler Street, where a woman crossing the street was hit by a truck and died, said North Las Vegas Police Officer Caitlyn Ebert. 

The westbound lanes of Cheyenne were closed while police investigated.

According to Ebert, the 29-year-old pedestrian had almost made it across the street when she was hit by a black Dodge truck. She was crossing outside of the marked crosswalk.

The Dodge driver, a male in his 30s, remained at the scene and cooperated with police. Impairment was not suspected, said Ebert. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
