One Dead in Crash Near Mountain Springs

MOUNTAIN SPRINGS -- One person was killed in a three-vehicle crash near Mountain Springs Sunday evening.

Nevada Highway Patrol confirms a car struck a motorcycle on State Route 160, just outside of Mountain Springs. A separate car then also crashed into the bike.

The man on the motorcycle, believed to be in his 30's, was confirmed dead on the scene. The driver of the first car, a woman in her 70's, was airlifted to a local hospital.

Both northbound and southbound lanes in the area were shut down for a time so the helicopter could land.

None of the five people in the second car were injured.

It's not yet clear who was at fault.
