Nevada Highway Patrol has identified the pedestrian who died after being hit by a pick-up truck on Highway 50 near Red Rock Road Monday night.

NHP says a preliminary investigation shows that a red 2016 Ford F-150 pickup was traveling westbound in the left-hand travel lane of Highway 50 west of Highlands Drive around 7 p.m. 

A pedestrian was walking northbound across Highway 50, outside of a crosswalk, and walked into the path of the F-150 pickup. The left front of the Ford pickup struck the pedestrian, 41-year-old Manuel Jesus Sepulveda of Carson City. 

He died on scene. 

NHP says the driver of the F-150 remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation.
