LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – A motorcyclist was killed this morning after a collision in a shopping center parking lot at 4001 South Decatur Boulevard.
The victim was hit in a parking lot just after 7:35 a.m. in the 4000 block of South Decatur Boulevard, near Flamingo, and did not survive his injuries. Metro Officer Laura Meltzer said speed was likely a factor.
According to a police report, the 2007 Kawasaki ZX6-R with a single rider was traveling westbound through the parking lot.
The Kawasaki was traveling too fast in the parking lot causing the rider to lose control. The motorcycle fell over on its right side and slid through the parking lot.
The motorcycle and 27-year-old rider then impacted a concrete planter box in front of a vacant business.
The motorcycle rider was pronounced dead at the scene by responding medical personnel.
This collision was the second traffic related fatality in Metro's jurisdiction in 2014. The collision remains under investigation by the LVMPD Accident Investigation Section.
