LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – A motorcyclist that witnesses say was weaving in and out of traffic at a high rate of speed was killed Tuesday night on Tropicana Avenue just west of Paradise Road.

According to a Metro news release, witness statements and evidence at the scene indicate a 2011 Suzuki GSX-R was traveling east on Tropicana recklessly just before 5 p.m. A 2005 Toyota 4Runner and 2011 Lincoln Town Car were stopped facing east for a red traffic signal west of Paradise.

For unknown reasons the rider of the Suzuki, a 30-year-old man from Henderson, hit the rear right of the Toyota and was ejected from the cycle. It slid on its left side and impacted the rear of the Lincoln. The motorcyclist was transported to Sunrise Hospital and was pronounced dead by attending medical personnel.

The drivers of the Toyota and Lincoln had no injuries.

This is the 65th-traffic related fatality in LVMPD's jurisdiction in 2013 and second that involved a motorcyclist on Tuesday. This collision remains under investigation by Metro’s Accident Investigations Section.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
