The Clark County Coroner has confirmed that a 67-year-old motorcyclist died of blunt force trauma to his chest sustained in a motorcycle accident early this past Saturday. Authorities reported that the man was struck by another vehicle driven by a 46-year-old man. The accident occurred in North Las Vegas at Tropical Parkway and Decatur Road.
Initial reports suggest the 46-year-old's 2010 Toyota sedan slammed into the back of the victim's 2006 Yamaha motorcycle, apparently without attempting to brake. North Las Vegas police do believe that alcohol was a factor in the crash. As a result, the driver was booked into the Las Vegas County Jail on multiple charges, which included DUI causing death.
