Victim ID’d in Pahrump crash

The victim of a crash in Pahrump last week is identified as a 20-year-old man, the Nevada Highway Patrol reports.

About 8 p.m. Sept. 8, a black Kawasaki KLX 110 was westbound on Pahrump’s East Kellogg Road, near Squaw Valley Road, when it hit a Toyota Corolla head on, the Highway Patrol said.

The rider, identified as Maxwell Ethan Tom of Pahrump, was thrown off the bike and died at the scene, the NHP reported.

It was unclear why Tom was driving west in the eastbound lanes.

His death was the 58th traffic fatality investigated by the Highway Patrol’s Southern Command this year.
