LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – A motorcyclist died after a collision in North Las Vegas just before midnight Thursday.

Police said the motorcyclist crashed with a passenger car at the intersection of Las Vegas Boulevard and Bruce Street. Officers described the vehicles as a late 2000′s white Ford Escort and a 2016 black Honda motorcycle.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the driver of the Escort traveled southbound on Las Vegas Boulevard and attempted to turn left onto Bruce Street. The 19-year-old traveled northbound on Las Vegas Boulevard and approached Bruce while in a storage lane.

According to the Federal Highway Administration, a storage length allows cars to standby while waiting for signals to phase.

The motorcyclist was a 19-year-old male who was ejected from the motorcycle during the crash and “appeared to have serious injuries,” according to police. He was taken to University Medical Center for treatment where he later died. The driver of the Escort was uninjured.

Traffic officers do not believe that speed or impairment are factors, but they say the motorcyclist did not appear to have a motorcycle endorsement.

“The identification of the deceased, along with the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office,” police say.

Anyone who may have information about this collision is urged by police to contact the North Las Vegas Police Department by phone at 702-633-9111. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 702-385 -5555, or on the internet at
