Motorcyclist killed in NLV crash ID’d; driver could face charges

The motorcyclist who was killed in a crash Friday near the intersection of Craig Road and Revere Street in North Las Vegas has been identified.

He is Benjamin Roberts, 31, of Dallas, the Clark County coroner’s office said Monday.

Roberts was headed east on Craig Road about 3:15 p.m. when a truck hauling a trailer and going in the same direction clipped the motorcycle, causing Roberts to lose control, according to North Las Vegas police.

Roberts died at the scene.

The 35-year-old driver of the Ford F-250, whose name has not been released, will likely face charges after the investigation is over, North Las Vegas police spokeswoman Chrissie Coon said Monday.
