SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Sparks police say speed appears to have been a factor in a fatal motorcycle accident over the weekend.

Police say they found the victim lying in the road when they responded to a report of a crash Saturday night in an industrial area near Greg Street and Marietta Way.

Emergency crews tried to resuscitate the victim who was pronounced dead at a local hospital later that night.

Police say a preliminary investigation indicates the motorcyclist was speeding at the time of the accident.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sparks police at 775-353-2432 or Secret witness at 775-322-4900.
