The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal motorcycle crash north of Tonopah.
Kenneth D. Gunerius, 81, of Buckeye, Arizona, was thrown from his motorcycle and later died in a Las Vegas hospital, the NHP announced this week.
The crash occurred about 8 a.m., Sept. 13, along U.S. Highway 6 near Nye County mile marker 19.
“Preliminary investigation shows a maroon 2015 Canam Spider three-wheeled motorcycle was traveling westbound on U.S. 6,” the NHP said in a statement. “For an unknown reason, the Canam drifted off the roadway to the right and struck a culvert sign.”
Gunerius was transported by ambulance to the hospital in Las Vegas where he died, the NHP said.
