A 50-year-old Las Vegas man was killed Saturday night after losing control of his motorcycle on Las Vegas Boulevard near Jean.
The man was traveling north about 10 p.m. when he hit a curve in the road and was thrown from the motorcycle, said Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Loy Hixson. The man was pronounced dead at the scene, Hixson said.
Police closed a section of the highway for about five hours while investigating the scene, he said. Release of the man's identity is pending notification of his next of kin, Hixson said.
