LAS VEGAS -- A 78-year-old female from Las Vegas has become the 95th person killed this year in an auto accident within Metro's jurisdiction.

An 83-year-old male, Ernesto Castro, also of Las Vegas, was critically injured in the Friday evening accident at 13th Street and Bridge Avenue not far from downtown.

The collision happened less than 70 feet from a crosswalk.

Metro reported that a 2006 Hyundai Elantra driven by Sir Selt, 62, of Las Vegas was headed northbound on 13th Street from the east to the west when it struck the two pedestrians who were 66 feet north of the nearest crosswalk. The pedestrians were in the middle travel lane when they were hit by the Hyundai. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene while the male was transported to UMC Trauma in critical condition.

The accident remains under investigation. Metro officers at the scene said the area has poor visibility, which could have been a factor in the accident.
