LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say a 23-year-old motorcyclist killed in a Las Vegas area freeway crash was a U.S. Air Force service member stationed at Nellis Air Force Base who lived in North Las Vegas.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says Derek Weston Moore crashed his 2003 Suzuki motorcycle a little after 3 a.m. Monday on the northern 215 Beltway west of Pecos Road.

Trooper Jeremie Elliott says Moore was pronounced dead at the scene. The cause of the crash wasn’t immediately determined.

Nellis officials say Moore was a senior airman who worked as an electro environmental systems journeyman. He was assigned to the 757th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron.

A memorial service is set for 3 p.m. Friday at the chapel on the Las Vegas-area air base.
