LAS VEGAS (AP) -- The Nevada Highway Patrol says a motorcyclist has died following a crash that closed a busy ramp at the Interstate 15, U.S. 95 Spaghetti Bowl interchange for more than two hours.

Trooper Jeremie Elliott says the 64-year-old man from North Las Vegas died at University Medical Center in Las Vegas following the crash just after 10 a.m. Friday.

It wasn't immediately clear what caused the man riding a 1998 Harley-Davidson to crash on the I-15 southbound ramp to U.S. 95 north.

The ramp remained closed until about 12:30 p.m. while troopers investigated.
