A dirt bike rider died in a Saturday afternoon collision with an SUV in northwest Las Vegas.

In a preliminary crash report, investigators said the dirt bike rider was northbound on Sky Canyon Park Drive about 3:10 p.m. and failed to stop for a red light for a traffic signal at Iron Mountain Road. The dirt bike ran into the left front of a turning Cadillac XTS.

The rider, believed to be 16, was declared deceased at the scene.

The driver of the Cadillac suffered minor injuries while a passenger was uninjured.

A news release said the motorcycle rider’s death was the 61st traffic-related fatality in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s jurisdiction this year.

The Clark County coroner’s office will release the name of the rider after relatives have been notified.

When moving tree, remove some of its canopy

When moving any kind of tree from one location to another, I recommend removing about one-quarter to one-third of the tree’s canopy to compensate for the loss of roots.
