The accident happened when the driver of a 2006 Vespa motorcycle, whose identity is being withheld until the next of kin can be notified, crossed from the far right lane into the far left lane and into the path of a 2008 Chevy Malibu being driven by John Spielberg of Las Vegas, reports said.

The Chevy struck the Vespa on the left side. The motorcyclist was taken to Spring Valley Hospital where he was pronounced dead by medical personnel, reports said.
