Motorcyclist performing 'wheelie' killed in crash
REVIEW-JOURNAL

A 22-year-old motorcyclist died early Sunday after being struck by another vehicle that was involved in illegal street racing, police said.

The motorcyclist was performing a "wheelie" on Post Road, near the intersection of Sunset and Sandhill roads, when the driver of a 1992 Acura made a U-turn, Las Vegas police said. The motorcyclist was unable to stop and hit the left side of the car, police said.

Police identified the motorcyclist as Michael Jorge.

The driver of the Acura fled the scene.

Anyone with information about the crash can call police at 229-3786 or 385-5555.

There were two this past weekend. The one on post road the driver of the vehicle fled and called the next day to report his car stolen. When told he needed to come in he got all nervous. It was a mutual fault accident and even though a kid died he would've received only a few misdemeanor citations. Because he left the scene when he is finally taken into custody he'll probably be charged with felony hit/run resulting in death.
Only got bits & pieces from the second.
