LAS VEGAS (AP) — The North Las Vegas Police Department is investigating a fatal crash involving a bus and a pedestrian in motorized wheelchair.

Investigators don't believe impairment was a factor in the crash on Las Vegas Blvd. and Civic Center Dr. Saturday night.

Police say the RTC bus was in the dedicated bus lane and it appears the female pedestrian was in the crosswalk.

They say investigators will determine who was at fault through witness testimony, surveillance video and evidence at the scene.

The Clark County coroner's office will release the woman's name and the cause and manner of death after her family has been notified.
