Nevada Highway Patrol has identified the motorcycle rider killed in a crash on USA Parkway in Lyon County this past weekend. 

The crash happened around noon at mile marker 5 in Lyon County, approximately 5 miles north of US-50.

NHP says 58-year-old Samuel Ray Cox was riding a 2003 Harley Davidson south towards Silver Springs when he drifted towards the center median, lost control and drove into the rocks along the roadway. 

He then struck a roadside marker and overturned, being ejected from the motorcycle. He died on scene. 

Speeding was not a factor in this case.
