Motorcyclist dead after colliding with road barrier near LVB in Las Vegas, NV

On the evening of June 27, 2023 , a 53-year-old motorcyclist tragically died after colliding with a concrete barrier near the Las Vegas Strip. Las Vegas Metro police reported that the crash occurred at 6:23 p.m. on West Desert Inn Road, just east of the intersection with Polaris Avenue. Evidence and witness statements indicated a blue 2007 Suzuki GSX-R750 had been travelling eastbound on Desert Inn Road at a ”high rate of speed.” The rider failed to stay in the single travel lane, veering right and striking the barrier, before being ejected from the motorcycle and coming to rest in the rock landscape area of Rancho Drive below Desert Inn Road. Medical personnel determined the rider was ”beyond medical intervention” and he was pronounced dead at the scene. A witness reported that the motorcycle might have been racing a black Dodge Charger or Challenger with dark-tinted windows.
