One person died after a crash between a motorcycle and a vehicle Monday morning in Las Vegas.

The crash occurred just before 11:20 a.m. at the intersection of East Flamingo Road and University Center Drive, according to a Metropolitan Police Department statement.

Police said in a news release that the motorcyclist, a 55-year-old man, was driving toward the intersection with a red traffic signal when the bike overturned and the rider and motorcycle slid into the intersection. The rider and motorcycle collided with the front of a Toyota Corolla Cross, which had a fresh green traffic signal.

The motorcycle also slid into a Honda Passport Sport, and other debris from the collision struck a Honda Accord.

The Clark County coroner’s office Tuesday identified Sylvester Dumas as the motorcycle rider.

Dumas was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center where he died from injuries sustained in the crash. No other injuries were reported.

His death is the 31st traffic-related fatality in Metro’s jurisdiction this year.
