A man ended up hospitalized after an auto-motorcycle collision on Tuesday afternoon, July 28th. 30-year-old Keyland Leroy was riding the SUV that struck the motorcycle rider in the south Las Vegas Valley, Nevada.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a press briefing that the victim rode a 2015 Honda CBR 1000 RR north on Valley View Boulevard from Russell Road at about 1:25 p.m. At the same time, a 2011 Ford Edge, driven by Leroy, traveled south on the same roadway.
The driver suddenly made a left turn in front of the victim, causing a collision. The motorcycle hit the front of the Ford, ejecting the rider and leaving him critically injured. The LVMPD said that medics transported the man to the University Medical Center for treatment, and there’s no update on his condition at this time.
Leroy did not sustain any injury from the collision; he stayed at the scene and did not appear impaired in any capacity. The investigation remains active.
Auto-motorcycle accidents are not common, and one of the ways to prevent them is carrying out safety checks before and after mounting the bike. Check and ensure that the clutch and throttle are working smoothly, and clean and adjust all mirrors to ensure sharp viewing.
Test front and rear brakes by ensuring they feel firm and test the horn to ensure proper function. Check the tires for cracks or bulges, or signs of wear in the tread, look for signs of oil leakage, check the headlights, taillights, and signals for high and low beams, and check the hydraulic and coolant levels weekly.
