A 26-year-old man was killed after his motorcycle collided with the back of a vehicle early Tuesday morning.
According to Las Vegas police, the man, driving a 2008 Suzuki motorcycle, was traveling eastbound on Ann Road near Blooming Street and was changing lanes when he crashed into the left rear of a 1999 Honda Accord, which was also traveling eastbound, at 1:45 a.m.
The driver of the motorcycle was thrown off his vehicle because of the impact. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the Accord suffered no injuries.
