Off Duty Officer Involved in Accident

An off duty Las Vegas Metro Police Officer was involved in a fatal auto-pedestrian accident Monday night.

The Nevada Highway Patrol, who are handling the investigation, say it happened on West Sahara and South Decatur. The off duty officer was driving on Sahara, where the pedestrian was walking in the travel lane, not in a crosswalk. The officer swerved to avoid the pedestrian but the front of his car hit the man. The 62-year old pedestrian was taken to UMC and pronounced dead. Impairment is not suspected.
