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.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
