North Las Vegas Police are investigating a fatal motorcycle crash that happened in the 1400 block of East Lake Mead Boulevard.
Around 11:30 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to a serious crash involving one motorcycle near Lake Mead Boulevard and Bruce Street. Medical personnel arrived on scene and transported a 25-year-old man to UMC Trauma where he succumbed to his injuries.
The preliminary investigation indicates the motorcycle was traveling eastbound on Lake Mead Boulevard from Bruce Street at a high rate of speed and lost control. The rider put the motorcycle down onto the roadway, ejecting the rider onto the pavement.
The rider was not suspected of impairment but speed is believed to be a factor in this case.
The coroner’s office will release the identity, and cause and manner of death, of the decedent after proper notification of next of kin has been made.
This is the 8th traffic fatality in North Las Vegas in 2018.
