Accident scene

Two people were airlifted to a hospital this morning after a school bus pulled out in front of their motorcycle, resulting in a collision, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.

At 8:45 a.m., a male driving a three-wheeled motorcycle with a female passenger was traveling southbound on Blue Diamond Road. A Clark County School bus making a left on to northbound Blue Diamond Road from El Capitan Way pulled in front of the motorcycle, according to Trooper Jeremie Elliott. The motorcycle collided with the bus, injuring both people on the motorcycle but leaving the children on the bus unharmed.

Both people on the motorcycle were flown by helicopter to University Medical Center. The driver sustained head injuries, and the nature of the passenger’s injuries are currently unavailable. They were both wearing helmets, according to Elliott.

The roadway is clear, but traffic delays should be expected, Elliot said.
