LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- A 68-year-old Las Vegas man died early Sunday morning after being hit Saturday night while jaywalking in the northeast part of the valley.

John Wayne Aveiro died at 2:45 a.m. at Sunrise Trauma Center, according to the Clark County coroner's office. His official cause and manner of death are pending an autopsy.

Metro said evidence and witnesses at the scene indicated that a 2005 Chevy Classic was traveling southbound on Nellis Boulevard just south of East Sahara Avenue when it hit a pedestrian outside of a marked crosswalk as he attempted to cross Nellis from east to west. Aveiro entered the right southbound travel lane and was struck by the front of the Chevy.

Metro officers said they smelled alcohol on the victim. Aveiro was transported to Sunrise.

The two occupants of the Chevy claimed minor injuries and remained at the scene. The accident occurred about 8:10 p.m.

The collision remains under investigation.

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)
