Henderson, NV (KTNV) -- A 20-year-old motorcyclist was killed this morning in Henderson.

According to the Henderson Fire Department, the motorcyclist was traveling eastbound on Windmill Parkway and approaching the intersection with Arroyo Grande Boulevard at about 11:20 a.m.

For some reason, he lost control, hit the center median and then struck a light pole.

The rider was taken to Sunrise Hospital Trauma but he died from his injuries. The motorcyclist was the registered owner of the bike but he did not have a motorcycle license.

A preliminary investigation revealed that speed may have been a factor. It is not believed that the motorcyclist was impaired.

The Clark County coroner will release the man's name after his relatives have been notified.
