10/12 blue diamond fatal

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Nevada Highway Patrol responded to a fatal crash on Tuesday night in the southwest valley. 

The crash involved a motorcycle and tractor-trailer, NHP Trooper Travis Smaka said, on Blue Diamond Road near Torry Pines Drive. The crash was reported about 8:43 p.m. on Oct. 12.

Smaka said the white tractor-trailer was traveling westbound on Blue Diamond, trying to turn southbound onto Torrey Pines. At the same time, the rider of a Kawasaki sport bike was speeding eastbound, witnesses said.

The rider hit the rear axel of the truck, killing them.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the motorcyclist as 32-year-old Arman Amjad. He died of blunt trauma in an accident, the coroner ruled. 

Eastbound Blue Diamond Road was closed between Rainbow and Jones.

My neighbor in the complex where I live speeds wherever he goes on his bike. 60 mph through the apartments and 100 plus on the streets. These faux bikers give us good ones a bad name and should have all motorcycle privileges revoked for life. Unfortunate for this guy he did it to himself and ruined that truck drivers life. Cops can't chase these idiots for fear of them killing themself or others. It's a shame
