A motorcyclist died after a car made an “unsafe U-turn” in the east Las Vegas Valley on Thursday night, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.
Trooper Jason Buratczuk said a Harley-Davidson was eastbound on Lake Mead Boulevard when a Nissan Altima, also heading east, made an “unsafe U-turn” in front of the motorcycle near Los Feliz Street.
The motorcyclist was ejected from the bike and pronounced dead at the scene, Buratczuk said. The driver of the Altima was arrested on suspicion of DUI.
Investigators are at the scene, and Lake Mead was closed in both directions as of 8:30 p.m.
