LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says they responded to a call at 10:30 a.m. of a crash at Rainbow Boulevard and Sobb Avenue.

Preliminary details indicate a traffic collision occurred in the southbound Rainbow lanes, south of the intersection, between a motorcycle and a Nissan SUV.

A 1995 Honda CBR600 motorcycle was traveling south on Rainbow Boulevard at a high rate of speed as it approached Sobb Avenue behind the Nissan, according to police.

Police say the motorcycle collided with the rear of the Nissan, overturned and the motorcyclist was ejected onto the roadway, coming to rest in the southbound travel lanes of Rainbow Boulevard.

The driver of the motorcyclist, an adult male, and two occupants in the SUV, an adult female and a 7-year-old girl, were transported to UMC Trauma.

Police say the motorcyclist's injuries are life-threatening and the mother and daughter who were in the SUV have minor injuries.

Rainbow Boulevard was closed in both directions from Post Road to Patrick Lane for several hours. It has since reopened.
