LAS VEGAS (KXNT) — A motorcycle rider was killed as slamming into a wall east of downtown Las Vegas Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.

The crash happened near the intersection of Eastern Avenue and Valley Street just after 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, a Las Vegas Metro Police statement reported.

Witnesses told investigators a motorcycle rider on a 2008 Harley-Davidson was heading northbound on Eastern and missed a curve in the roadway, impacting with a barrier wall before then hitting a secondary property wall. The curve was marked with flashing yellow lights.

The driver, identified as a 45-year-old woman from Las Vegas, was taken to University Medical Center where she died a short time later. Her name was not immediately released pending family notification.

The crash remains under investigation by the LVMPD Collision Investigation Section.

    It is about time that the police crack down on Motorcycles, motor bikes (unlicensed) threading in and out of traffic..What amazes me is that more are not killed or injured.
