A motorcyclist was fatally injured on Buffalo Drive and Alexander Way on Saturday, Sept. 8, 2018.

A motorcyclist was fatally injured Saturday afternoon when he crashed into a turning car in the northwest valley, according to Metro Police.

The 63-year-old Las Vegas man died at University Medical Center, police said. The elderly motorist suffered moderate injuries.

More motorcyclists will be out on valley roadways this month as the weather begins to cool. As a result of Saturday’s crash, Metro’s traffic bureau asked the public to be increasingly aware of their movements.

Officers and medics responded about 12:20 p.m. to Buffalo Drive and Alexander Road, police said.

An initial investigation determined a 2015 Harley Davidson was heading north on Buffalo when it crashed at the intersection with the southbound car, which was turning left onto Alexander on a green light, police said.

This was the 96th traffic fatality investigated by Metro this year.
