ELKO – A Spring Creek man died Thursday evening in a collision while driving a motorcycle on Mountain City Highway.
The motorcycle was heading north at a high rate of speed at about 5:40 p.m., witnesses told Elko police. A car pulled out of Cimarron Way to make a left turn onto the highway and was struck by the motorcycle.
“Speed was definitely a factor, according to witnesses who were on Mountain City Highway,” said Lt. Mike Palhegyi.
The motorcycle driver was identified as Clayton M. Sunday, 21.
Palhegyi said the Nevada Highway Patrol mapped the accident scene Friday afternoon, and data from the vehicles is being investigated.
