Motorcyclist killed in central Las Vegas crash

A motorcyclist was killed after a crash in central Las Vegas on Thursday morning.

The 38-year-old Las Vegas man was riding a 2007 Kawasaki ZX1000 south on Torrey Pines Drive, just south of Burlwood Way, when he “failed to negotiate a left-hand curve in the roadway” and was thrown off the bike and into a light pole, police said in a statement Thursday afternoon.

The man was taken to University Medical Center, where he died.

The Clark County coroner’s office will identify the man after family has been notified.
