LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A motorcyclist died after a crash in the northwest valley on Sunday, police said.

Officers responded about 6:15 p.m. on April 21 to West Lake Mead Boulevard at Lirio Way, near Jones Boulevard. 

A Nissan driven by a man in his 20s failed to yield while making a left turn onto Lirio Way, and a motorcyclist crashed into the passenger-side of the Nissan, Metro police spokesman Lt. Mike Welch said. 

The motorcyclist was thrown from his motorcycle over a wall into an apartment complex, police said. The rider was transported to University Medical Center Trauma, but was pronounced dead by medical staff.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the motorcyclist as Danilo Cunanan Bansil Jr, 41, from Las Vegas. 

Police added the motorcyclist was speeding before crashing into the Nissan.

The driver of the Nissan sustained minor injuries and didn't show signs of impairment.

At the scene, Metro Lt. Greg Munson said this was the department's 36th fatal crash of the year, and the 7th involving a motorcycle. 

Roads in the area were closed while officers investigated the crash.
