HENDERSON (KTNV) — Henderson police are investigating a deadly crash from Friday evening.

Authorities say they were called to the intersection of West Lake Mead Parkway and Perlite Way at about 9 p.m. in reference to a collision involving a vehicle and a bicyclist.

A preliminary investigation revealed a blue Alfa Romeo SUV was traveling eastbound on Lake Mead Parkway when it changed lanes and crossed into the bicycle lane causing the collision, according to Henderson police.
