Motorcyclist dies in Nevada Highway 160 crash near Pahrump

The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating the death of a motorcyclist killed in a crash along Highway 160, late Saturday morning Oct. 20.

The preliminary investigation, according to an NHP news release, stated the male adult riding a black Harley Davidson, was traveling southbound on the highway, approaching Nye County Mile Marker 22, north of the Tecopa turnoff when the rider drove off of the right side of the highway and entered into a ditch at approximately 11:15 a.m.

As a result, the rider was thrown from the motorcycle.

This marks the Nevada Highway Patrol Southern Command’s 53rd fatal crash resulting in 65 fatalities for 2018.”
