A motorcyclist traveling at a high rate of speed was ejected from his Yamaha sports bike and run over by a car on the southbound U.S. 95 at Centennial Parkway early Sunday.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the victim as 21-year-old Daisjurr McClain, II. His official cause of death was multiple blunt force injuries and the manner was ruled an accident.

The man died at the scene in the 4:22 a.m. incident.

"Troopers at the scene aren't sure why yet, but the biker was in the right travel lane and applied heavy brakes," Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Jason Buratczuk told News 3. "He was thrown from the sport bike and landed in the second from left travel lane and was run over by a silver Audi A4."

The driver of the Audi remained at the scene and no impairment was suspected, Buratczuk said.

A good Samaritan attempted to stop traffic before the Audi struck the motorcyclist, NHP said.

The initial report is that the 2012 Yamaha R6 was stolen.

The crash was similar to last Sunday's incident on Interstate 15 between Spring Mountain and Flamingo roads when a Toyota pickup driver was struck by the driver of a Chevy Suburban who fled the scene, Buratczuk said.

The driver of the black Suburban has not been found.

Witnesses to the motorcycle crash said the bike entered U.S. 95 at Sky Pointe Drive and was traveling southbound at a high rate of speed all the way to Centennial Parkway.
