LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The Clark County Coroner's office identified a teen motorcyclist who died in a crash that also involved a car.

Medical examiners, though, did not disclose the cause of death for Tyler Slade Weber, 19.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, Weber was involved in the crash that took place Wednesday at 3:20 p.m. at West Sahara Avenue, between Cimarron Road and Buffalo Drive.

The motorcyclist was pronounced dead at University Medical Center.

According to Metro's Sgt. Richard Strader, a woman driving a white Honda westbound on Sahara turned left in front of the Yamaha motorcycle. It's not known who was at fault. The motorcyclist may have been speeding or the driver of the Honda may not have seen him.

This marks the 77th fatal traffic-related accident in Metro's jurisdiction in 2013.
