LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A man has died after being ejected from his motorcycle in south Las Vegas on Saturday afternoon. 

Nevada Highway Patrol units responded to the single-vehicle crash on the I-15 on-ramp at Blue Diamond Road at 2:55 p.m. The 66-year rider was taken to University Medical Center where he later died from the injuries sustained in the crash, Trooper Jason Buratczuk said. 

Investigators believe an article of clothing got caught in the rear wheel of the motorcycle causing it to lock and skid on the road. The motorcycle then overturned and ejected the man, Trooper Buratczuk said. 

The road was temporarily shut down to traffic. 

The identity of the victim will be released by the Clark County Coroner's office after his family is notified.
