LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Police say a 55-year-old motorcyclist is dead after rear-ending a stopped van in an early-morning crash in Las Vegas.
Authorities say the crash happened a little before 3 a.m. Friday on Nellis Boulevard near Owens Avenue. Officials say the man was riding a Harley Davidson on Nellis and didn't brake in time to avoid the van that was stopped at a red light.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His name hasn't yet been released.
Police say the 46-year-old woman driving the van had minor injuries.
The crash marked the 19th traffic-related death in Las Vegas police jurisdiction this year.
Some medical providers say they often deal with Hispanic patients who are afraid to seek medical care. It's hoped the opening of a new medical clinic will change that.
