A 28-year-old motorcyclist was killed Sunday when a Porsche driven by a 70-year-old woman turned into her path, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

Police said the motorcyclist was riding a Suzuki GSX-R750 east on Russell Road approaching Torrey Pines Drive at about 11:25 a.m. Sunday.

A Porsche Carrera heading west on Russell Road, also approaching the intersection of Torrey Pines Drive, then made a left turn, “crossing the path of travel of the Suzuki,” police said. The front of the motorcycle hit the front of the Porsche.

The Clark County coroner’s office identified the motorcyclist on Monday as Rhiannon Nichole Sacks. She died at the scene.

Police said the driver of the Porsche, Sheridan Beaulieu of Las Vegas, stayed at the scene of the crash and showed no signs of impairment. She was not injured.

The death of the motorcyclist is the 131st traffic-related fatality in Metro’s jurisdiction in 2022, police said.
