Henderson Motorcyclist Dies in Crash

LAS VEGAS -- A 20-year-old motorcyclist died Thursday after he lost control of his bike and hit a light pole, Henderson Police said.

According to police, the Henderson man was riding east on Windmill Parkway about 11:20 a.m. when he hit a center median as he approached Arroyo Grande Boulevard. The rider was thrown from his bike and hit the light pole.

The rider, who was wearing a helmet, was taken to Sunrise Hospital for treatment, but died from his injuries. He was the registered owner of the motorcycle, but didn't have a motorcycle license, the police said.

Speed appears to be a factor in the crash. Drugs and alcohol are not suspected to be contributing factors. The roadway was closed while police investigate.

The rider's name will be released by the Clark County Coroner's Office. His death marks the second traffic-related fatality in Henderson this year.
