LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A motorcyclist has died after a crash involving two cars on Friday night. 

Las Vegas Metropolitan police were investigating the crash near Bermuda Road and Windmill Lane around 4:27 p.m. on Dec. 25.

LVMPD Lt. Bret Ficklin provided an update to media on Friday night. 

The motorcycle driver clipped the right rear side of a van while attempting to change lanes, Ficklin said. Excessive speed appears to be a factor on the motorcycle driver's part, police say.

The motorcyclist was thrown from the vehicle, and his body collided with a second car that was on the road. The motorcyclist was pronounced dead on scene, according to police. 

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the motorcyclist as Justin Kenneth Keene, 36, from Las Vegas. Keene died from blunt trauma and his death was ruled an accident, the coroner's office said.

The driver of the van, a 39-year-old man, remained on scene and no impairment is suspected, Ficklin said. Neither the van driver nor the driver of the second car sustained injuries, according to police. 

Bermuda from Warm Springs to Windmill Road and Robindale Road were closed to traffic in all directions Friday night.
