Henderson man killed in motorcycle crash

A 50-year-old Henderson man died after he lost control of his off-road motorcycle Sunday evening near Lake Mead Parkway.

Henderson Police said the man, identified by the coroner as Bud Goldsby, was riding an off-road motorcycle at a high rate of speed on Ivy Street as he approached the intersection with Metropolitan Drive.

A preliminary investigation indicates Goldsby lost control of the motorcycle before hitting a curb and a light pole, police said. The accident happened at 6:40 p.m.

Goldsby, who was not wearing a helmet, was ejected, police said. He was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center’s trauma unit, where he later died.

Investigators think speed was a factor in the crash, but it’s unclear whether drugs or alcohol contributed, police said. The investigation is ongoing.

The accident is the fifth traffic fatality in Henderson this year.
