He was Danilo Cunanan Bansil Jr. or Las Vegas, according to the Clark County coroner’s office. He died of multiple blunt force injuries, and his death was ruled accidental.

The crash happened about 6:15 p.m. on West Lake Mead Boulevard at Lirio Way, near North Torrey Pines Drive. Bansil was speeding east on Lake Mead when his 2004 Suzuki GSXR 1000 slammed into the passenger side of a westbound 2014 Nissan Altima turning left onto Lirio, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

Bansil was taken to University Medical Center, where he died, marking the 36th traffic death investigated this year by Metro.

The Nissan driver, a 21-year-old man, stayed at the scene and did not show any signs of impairment, police said. The crash remained under investigation Monday morning.
