At least two people were killed in a crash at Flamingo Road and Duneville Street on Friday, Sept. 13, 2019.

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas Metropolitan police said three people died, including a 12-year-old girl, after a crash involving a motorcyclist in the west valley Friday night.

Officers were called to the area of West Flamingo Road and Duneville Avenue, near South Jones Boulevard, around 7:25 p.m. on Sept. 13. According to Las Vegas police, a motorcyclist was driving recklessly at a high rate of speed.

The rider, a 29-year-old man from Las Vegas, was headed west on Flamingo just as the driver of a 2012 Lexus was making a left turn onto Duneville Avenue, police said. The Lexus crossed into the path of the motorcyclist.

The front of the motorcycle struck the right-side of the Lexus, causing the bike to become embedded into the car and both vehicles to overturn, according to Las Vegas police.

The occupants of the Lexus, the 12-year-old girl and a 42-year-old man, were pronounced dead at the scene.

Las Vegas police said the motorcyclist was also pronounced dead at the scene.

The Clark County Coroner's Office will release their identities after their families have been notified.

Flamingo was closed between Jones Boulevard and Lindell Road. The closure lasted for several hours.

The collision remains under investigation.
