LAS VEGAS (KSNV – A man is dead this morning after a motorcycle crash on southbound U.S. 95 just before the Cheyenne Avenue on-ramp.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says the accident occurred around 2:30 a.m. Troopers say the motorcyclist, identified as Christopher Ryan Peistrup, 23, of Las Vegas, may have been speeding and did not have time to react to a box truck in front of him.

Peistrup was ejected from the cycle and died at the scene. The motorcycle was wedged underneath the truck and dragged for about a quarter-mile.
