LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Authorities say a 23-year-old man from Texas is dead after a high-speed motorcycle crash in a rural southern Nevada town outside Las Vegas.

The Clark County coroner says Jose R. Marquez of Odessa, Texas, died late Sunday of multiple injuries after the crash in Moapa.

Las Vegas police say Marquez was thrown from a 2007 Yamaha R6 that hit a curb and slammed into a block wall in front of a home a little after 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Moapa is off Interstate 15, about 45 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
