Woman killed in Henderson motorcycle crash

The Clark County coroner identified a 19-year-old motorcyclist killed in a collision with a vehicle in Henderson as Destiny-Emily Maria Jorgensen.

Henderson police said Jorgensen was riding a 2011 Yamaha V-Star motorcycle on Green Valley Parkway when it collided with a 2003 PT Cruiser turning left near Sunset Road at about 7 p.m..

Jorgensen was pronounced dead a short time later at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center.

The car’s 64-year-old driver, Dwight Welton of Las Vegas, wasn’t injured.

Police said Welton voluntarily submitted to blood tests, but drugs, alcohol and the speed of the vehicles didn’t appear to be factors in the crash.
