North Las Vegas officer hurt in collision

A North Las Vegas police officer was hospitalized Friday afternoon with moderate injuries after his motorcycle collided with another vehicle.

The crash happened about 4:15 p.m. at Owens Avenue and Main Street when a 51-year-old female driving a sedan failed to yield to traffic when she turned left, North Las Vegas police officer Chrissie Coon said. The officer was thrown from his motorcycle upon impact with the car, and was transported to University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries, Coon said. The woman was also transported to UMC with minor injuries.

The intersection will likely be closed for another couple hours, Coon said just before 6:30 p.m.
