HENDERSON (FOX5) -- A motorcyclist died after a crash with a pickup truck late Wednesday night in Henderson.

Henderson Police said the crash happened around 11:21 p.m. Nov. 27 on eastbound Warm Springs Road at Grayson Circle near Green Valley Parkway.

HPD said 47-year-old driver of the 2002 Chevrolet pickup was traveling eastbound on Warm Springs when a 2008 Honda motorcycle hit the truck from behind.

The motorcycle rider was pronounced dead at the scene, HPD said.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the motorcyclist as 24-year-old David Bacon from Henderson. He died of multiple blunt force injuries and his death was ruled an accident, the coroner's office said.

Eastbound lanes of Warm Springs from Heavenly View to the 3100 block of West Warm Springs were shut down for about 4.5 hours while police investigated.

HPD said speed was considered a factor but it was unclear if impairment was a factor.

This is the tenth traffic-related fatality in Henderson's jurisdiction in 2019.

The question that needs to be answered is whether the driver of the pickup intentionally brake checked the motorcycle. It happens a lot unfortunately, but doesn't always result in an accident.
