Details were not immediately available from the Clark County Fire Department, but Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon confirmed about 10:40 p.m. that an unknown number of palm trees had caught fire in front of Mandalay Bay, 3950 Las Vegas Boulevard South.
The crash, reported just after 7:40 p.m., happened when a pickup truck heading east on Lake Mead Boulevard made a left turn onto Lamb Boulevard into the path of the motorcyclist, according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Grant Rogers.
Police have named the 72-year-old man who died Saturday afternoon after a crash in the central valley.
A man died Sunday morning after he was struck by a car east of the Las Vegas Strip.
Among the many Nevada newsmakers who died in 2018 were a former Nevada governor and U.S. senator, a celebrity columnist and TV host known for bidding his viewers “Champagne wishes and caviar dreams” at the end of his show and the namesake of The Smith Center for the Performing Arts.
