Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - For the second time in three days, a motorcyclist has been killed on the valley freeways.

The lastest crash happened Tuesday night in the south part of town on the connector ramp to go from the westbound Southern Beltway on to I-15 north.

Nevada Highway Patrol says that just before 11pm, the driver of the motorcycle lost control and struck an inside barrier wall. The driver was thrown from the bike and died at the scene. No other vehicles were involved.

Back on November 29th, a motorcyclist was killed when a sedan slammed into a wall on 95 South at the Spaghetti Bowl. The force of the crash sent the sedan into the path of the bike, killing the bike's driver.

Impairment on behalf of the driver of the sedan is considered to be a factor in that crash.
