Motorcyclist killed after striking parked truck in North Las Vegas

On Saturday morning, a motorcyclist tragically died after crashing into a parked semi-trailer in North Las Vegas. North Las Vegas police responded to the 4100 block of Donovan Way, near the Nevada DMV Commercial Driver’s License Office, around 7:30 a.m. after receiving reports of a single-vehicle collision. Upon arriving, officers located the motorcyclist operator, believed to be an adult male in his early 50s. Medical personnel and North Las Vegas Fire Department personnel arrived at the scene and eventually pronounced the motorcyclist deceased. An investigation by NLVPD revealed that the motorcyclist had been travelling south on a 2011 Victory motorcycle when it ”failed to maintain its lane of travel and struck the rear of a parked semi-trailer.” Police reported that the motorcycle rider was wearing a D.O.T approved helmet, however speed is believed to have been a factor in the collision. The identity of the deceased, along with the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office after the notification of the next of kin.
