Las Vegas police are investigating a crash in the east valley that left a motorcyclist dead Thursday afternoon.
Officers were called at about 4:30 p.m. to the scene at Desert Inn Road and Nellis Boulevard, said Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Jeff Goodwin.
A car and a motorcycle collided, and the motorcyclist was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, where he died, Goodwin said.
The collision is being investigated as a crash of a motorcycle because of the size of its engine, but it may have been a motorized scooter, Goodwin said.
Further details about the crash were not immediately available.
