LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 22-year-old motorcyclist is dead after going off the road on a curve in Las Vegas and hitting a short concrete wall.

Las Vegas police say the crash happened just before 3 a.m. Monday on Dean Martin Drive, south of Tropicana Avenue.

Police say the man went off the east side of the roadway and was thrown from the motorcycle when he hit the wall.

He was pronounced dead on the scene. His name hasn't yet been released.

The crash marks the 90th traffic-related death so far this year in Las Vegas police jurisdiction.

It came less than five hours after another 22-year-old motorcyclist was killed in another part of Las Vegas. That victim struck a minivan at an intersection.
