GARDNERVILLE, Nev. » The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating the death of a pedestrian who was struck by three vehicles on U.S. Highway 395 south of Gardnerville, including two Douglas County sheriff's patrol cars.

Trooper Dave Gibson said in a statement the man was reported to be standing in the southbound travel lane near Spring Valley Drive when he first was struck by a pickup truck about 11 p.m. Sunday.

He said the man was thrown into the northbound lanes where two on-duty deputies driving patrol cars didn't see him, and also struck him. All three drivers stopped to assist him, but he died at the scene.

Gibson said Monday the three drivers are cooperating in the investigation. Neither alcohol nor drugs are suspected to have been involved. Gibson said there is no roadway lighting on the stretch of highway, where the speed limit is 55 mph.

The victim's name has not been released.
