Las Vegas resident Vincent Foster, 49, died at UMC, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.
NHP’s preliminary investigation said the collision occurred about 11:45 p.m. when a white 2015 Toyota Scion XB taxi that was eastbound on Spring Mountain Road collided with a bicycle being driven by Foster against a “no walk” signal near Mel Torme Way.
“The taxi had a green light and proceeded eastbound toward the intersection,” the news release stated. “Foster was on a bicycle and traveling from the north side of Spring Mountain to the south in a marked crosswalk. The pedestrian disregarded the “No Walk” signal and rode into the path of the taxi resulting in a collision.”
Foster was ejected from the bicycle and transported to UMC Trauma with life-threatening injuries. He died Friday.
A man driving the taxi driver on scene and cooperated with the investigation. The taxi did not have any passengers and the driver was not issued a traffic citation.
