A 69 year-old man was transported to the hospital with life-threatening injuries early today after being struck by a motorcycle.
At about 1:45 a.m., the man was in a crosswalk in the 2000 block of West Lake Mead Boulevard, near North Martin Luther King Boulevard, when he was hit by a 22-year-old man on a motorcycle, North Las Vegas Police Officer Chrissie Coon said.
The pedestrian was transported to University Medical Center.
The motorcyclist was cited for not having a registration or insurance and for failure to yield to a pedestrian, Coon said.
“Speed appeared to be a factor,” Coon said. “But drugs and alcohol do not appear to be a factor.”
