Henderson man killed in motorcycle accident

Accident

A Henderson man died Thursday morning after crashing his motorcycle and hitting a light pole in west Henderson.

The man, 20, crashed a Suzuki Katana motorcycle around 11:20 a.m. Thursday after losing control of the vehicle and crashing into a center median on the intersection of Windmill Lane and Arroyo Grande Boulevard. The man was separated from the motorcycle and hit a light pole, Henderson Police spokesman Keith Paul said in a statement.

The rider was transported to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center where he died from injuries sustained in the crash. The man was wearing a helmet, but speed appeared to be a factor in the crash. The man was the registered owner the vehicle but did not have a motorcycle driver's license, Paul said.

The death is the second traffic-related fatality in Henderson in 2013, Paul said.

  1. Registered owner of the bike but didn't have a M/C license? It should be mandatory that all persons registering a motorcycle should have the license to back it up, and how did he get insurance to register the bike if he didnt have a license?
