UPDATE JULY 29: The Clark County Coroner has identified the man who was killed in the crash as 25-year-old Anthony Josh Mitchell Monette from Las Vegas. The cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma and ruled an accident.

Las Vegas police say a motorcyclist was killed after a collision with a car on Rainbow Boulevard on Wednesday morning.

Police say the 26-year-old motorcyclist was traveling southbound on Rainbow at a high rate of speed when a car that was traveling northbound attempted to make a left-hand turn onto Tara Avenue, which is between Sahara Avenue and Desert Inn Road.

The motorcycle hit the car and the motorcyclist was ejected. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The Clark County coroner will release his name and the official cause of death at a later day.

Rainbow Boulevard was closed until the scene could be cleared.

Police say there have been 19 more traffic-related so far this year than there was at this same time last year.
