Motorcyclist killed during crash in southwest Las Vegas Valley
Tragically, a motorcyclist lost their life in a collision with another vehicle on Tuesday night in the southwest Las Vegas Valley. According to a police report, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department received reports of the crash at the intersection of West Desert Inn Road and South Tenaya Way at 7:24 p.m. Evidence at the scene and witness statements suggested that the incident occurred when a blue 2014 Toyota Corolla, traveling west on West Desert Inn Road in the left turn lane, attempted to make a left turn on a flashing yellow arrow. At the same time, a 2019 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was traveling east on Desert Inn in the center lane. The Toyota Corolla turned directly into the path of the motorcycle, resulting in a collision that ejected the motorcyclist from their bike. Despite all life-saving techniques, the rider succumbed to their injuries and was pronounced dead at the University Medical Center by medical staff. Fortunately, the driver of the Toyota Corolla showed no signs of impairment.
