A motorcyclist who died Monday after running a stop sign and hitting a bus was a 32-year-old Henderson man, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.
Richard Allen Peterson was riding a 2016 Yamaha motorcycle south on Haynes Drive when he ran the stop sign at the intersection of East Basic Road, Henderson police said.
Peterson crashed into a Regional Transportation Commission bus and died at Henderson Hospital from blunt force chest trauma. His death was ruled an accident, the coroner’s office said Tuesday afternoon.
A male passenger on the bus was treated at the scene for minor injuries.
