North Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A motorcyclist is dead following a single vehicle crash Sunday morning.

At about 3:45 a.m., officers were dispatched to the area of Donovan Way and East Craig Road in reference to a man down.

Arriving officers located 41-year-old Johnston Graves Overbey of North Las Vegas unresponsive and lying near the roadway. Medical personnel pronounced him dead at the scene.

The investigation indicated he was riding a 2005 Harley Davidson southbound on Donovan Way from East Craig Road when he lost control of the motorcycle.

Evidence suggests the vehicle left the roadway and Overbey was thrown from the motorcycle.

Speed is believed to be a factor in this crash.

This was the eighth traffic fatality in North Las Vegas this year.
