Nevada Highway Patrol Troopers responded to an injury crash involving a single motorcycle on SR-341 at D Street in Virginia City.
Preliminary investigation shows that a black 2017 Harley-Davidson motorcycle was northbound on SR-341 at a high rate of speed. The rider approached a sharp left-hand curve, applied heavy braking, and entered a locked wheel skid. The rider failed to slow the motorcycle sufficiently to negotiate the curve and the motorcycle left the roadway to the right. The rider was ejected from the motorcycle as it overturned down an embankment.
The rider, Anthony Pizarro, a 25-year-old Fernley resident, was transported via CareFlight to a local area hospital where he later succumbed to injuries sustained in the crash.
