North Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A bicyclist is dead after riding his bicycle into traffic in North Las Vegas on Friday evening.
It happened just after 7:15 p.m. on Cheyenne Avenue near Rancho Drive.
When officers arrived, they found a 55-year-old North Las Vegas man lying in the road unresponsive. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The investigation indicated the bicyclist was riding southbound across Cheyenne when he was struck by a Kia SUV traveling eastbound on Cheyenne.
Witnesses said several cars in both the west and eastbound lanes had to swerve or brake to avoid hitting the man.
The 23-year-old woman who was driving the Kia SUV was not injured.
Alcohol is believed to be a factor in this crash on part of the bicyclist. He will be identified by the Clark County Coroner's office following notification of his family.
The woman is not expected to face any charges.
