Fatal Motorcycle Accident In Carson City

Posted:

The southbound lanes of U.S. 395 in Carson City were closed for about three hours after a fatal crash left one motorcyclist dead Friday night.

Around 10 p.m., Nevada Highway Patrol Troopers responded to a report of a collision involving two vehicles and a motorcycle. It happened near Clearview Drive.

Troopers say a driver of a Mercury van was traveling northbound on 395 with two passengers when he entered the southbound travel lane striking a red Mitsubishi. They say the van continued northbound in the southbound travel lanes when it struck a red motorcycle driven by James Montez who was pronounced dead at the scene.

The conditions of the other drivers involved in the crash are unknown at this time.

Troopers are still trying to investigating what led up to the collision.
