Henderson, Nev. – On May 13, 2019, at about 1:40a.m., Henderson Police and Fire were dispatched to the area of Jessup Road and Robindale Road in reference to a single rider motorcycle collision.

Preliminary investigation revealed a 42-year-old male rider of a 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle was traveling northbound on Jessup Road approaching the “T” intersection of Robindale Road at a high rate of speed.  The driver of the motorcycle failed to negotiate a left or right turn of that intersection, striking a gate and a block wall on the north side of the intersection.
