LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified a 22-year-old motorcyclist who fled from a Las Vegas police officer before crashing into a minivan and dying over the weekend.

Clark County coroner's officials say Henderson resident Anthony Richard Lucero died in the crash Sunday night at the intersection of Charleston Boulevard and Linn Lane.

Police say an officer had tried to stop the motorcycle about a mile away from where the crash eventually happened, but Lucero drove off and the officer didn't pursue him.

Witnesses told police the motorcycle was speeding without its lights on when it struck a van that was making a left turn.

Lucero was thrown from the bike and died on the scene.

Two people in the van had minor injuries.
