A motorcyclist who was critically injured Wednesday morning in a crash in the west Las Vegas Valley has died.
According to the Metropolitan Police Department’s fatal detail unit, 22-year-old Elijah Edwards died Thursday from his injuries. His official cause and manner of death are pending with the Clark County coroner’s office.
The crash happened just before 8 a.m. near the intersection of Fort Apache Road and Katie Avenue. Police said Edwards, who was driving south on Fort Apache Road, collided with a 2011 Honda Fit making a left turn from Katie Avenue. The Honda then drove off the roadway and struck a wall, police said.
The motorcyclist and driver were both transported to University Medical Center, where Edwards later died. His death marked the 137th traffic-related fatality investigated by Metro this year.
