Motorcyclist Dies In Collision With SUV
Jul 17, 2010 7:43 p.m.

LAS VEGAS, N.V.—Las Vegas police reported a motorcyclist was killed Saturday afternoon when he struck an SUV.

According to the police report, a 2007 Nissan Pathfinder driven by Maria Mauricio-Martinez, 34, pulled out of a driveway onto Lamb Boulevard and into the path of a 2009 Yamaha motorcycle.

The motorcycle struck the left rear corner of the Pathfinder, and according to police Mauricio-Martinez fled the scene without stopping.

The motorcyclist, whose identity has not been released pending notification of next of kin, was transported to UMC Trauma and pronounced dead.

Mauricio-Martinez and a juvenile passenger were found a few blocks from the crash scene, and she was arrested.

This was the 40th traffic-related fatality in Las Vegas so far this year.

I saw the video photage from the news telecast The aftermath was horrible. From the looks of the skid and scrape marks on the pavement, it appeared to me that the rider was in the right lane.

From reading the latest report, it pretty much confirms it again, it's a vehicle pulling out in front of a motorcycle. Give yourself a buffer zone, stay out of that right lane and pay attention to all entry points on the roadway.

He was also wearing tennis shoes, as both of them were scattered onto differernt parts of the roadway. Just shows how violent the collision probably was, causing both his shoes to fly off.
