Updated April 7, 2019 - 4:49 pm

A 56-year-old woman was hit and killed Sunday morning after trying to cross a northeast Las Vegas Valley road, police said.

The crash occurred just before 9:50 a.m. on North Lamb Boulevard south of Sunrise Avenue, near East Charleston Boulevard, the Metropolitan Police Department said. The woman was crossing Lamb outside of a crosswalk while a Honda Accord drove north on Lamb in the left lane, a release said.

The woman walked into the Accord’s path and was hit, police said. She died at University Medical Center.

The 62-year-old driver stayed on scene and didn’t appear impaired, police said.

The Clark County coroner’s office will release the woman’s identity once her family is notified.

Her death marks the 31st traffic fatality investigated by Las Vegas police this year.
