The incident occurred at around 9:30 a.m., said the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police. Moreover, the incident occurred on Eastern and Sahara avenues.
According to the investigators, an RTC bus made a right turn from northbound Eastern Avenue onto eastbound Sahara Avenue. They added that the bus was on a green light.
However, the bus driver didn’t yield to a pedestrian walking north in the crosswalk.
As the bus hit the 55-year-old female pedestrian, the rear tires ran over her.
Then, responders took her to Sunrise Hospital where she later died.
On the other hand, the driver and one passenger suffered no injuries.
As a result of the crash, the authorities shut down Sahara and Eastern Avenues. However, the roads have since reopened.
