A man died Tuesday night after his motorcycle crashed in east Las Vegas.

Officers were called at 6:45 p.m. to South Lamb Boulevard near East Sahara Avenue after a man in his 60s lost control of his three-wheel 2021 Harley Davidson Freewheeler and crashed into a wall, according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Andrew Kelvington.

The man was ejected and was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center where he died, Kelvington said.

The death was the 27th traffic-related fatality in Metro’s jurisdiction this year.

The Clark County coroner will release the man’s name after relatives have been notified.
