Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- The Clark County coroner has identified the woman hit and killed Thursday night near Sahara and Durango.

59-year-old Quida Maria Gee of Las Vegas was jaywalking when she was hit, according to Las Vegas police.

They said Gee was trying to make it across six lanes of traffic, outside of a marked crosswalk, when she was hit.

Neighbors said jaywalking is common in the area, since there's a half-mile between crosswalks.

This was the 24th traffic-related fatality in Las Vegas so far this year.
