Coroner IDs motorcycle rider killed in crash

LAS VEGAS -- The Clark County Coroner's Office has identified the motorcycle rider who died last night as 44-year-old William Donnelly of Henderson.

The crash happened at approximately 9:30 p.m. Thursday on Desert Inn Road near Brentwood Street.

Police say Donnelly was traveling westbound along Desert Inn, when it hit a pickup truck. The truck was turning from Brentwood on to eastbound Desert Inn at the time of the collision.

The impact forced Donnelly from his bike. Emergency crews took him to Sunrise Hospital, where he died a short time later.

The 41-year-old male driver of the truck and a 38-year-old male passenger sustained minor injuries.

This is the 26th fatal crash in Metro Police jurisdiction this year.
