The man killed in a crash near Moapa on Tuesday evening has been identified.
David Clayton, 56, was identified by the Clark County coroner’s office. His cause and manner of death have not been released.
The Nevada Highway Patrol said troopers responded about 6:45 p.m. to a crash on Interstate 15 near mile marker 104, north of Moapa. A Corvette had rolled, the highway patrol said, and the driver was dead at the scene.
The highway patrol said, the red Chevrolet Corvette was traveling northbound on Interstate 15 near mile marker 104 at high speed. After the vehicle left the roadway and entered the west dirt shoulder, the driver overcorrected to the right and the vehicle crossed both northbound travel lanes while rotating clockwise, the highway patrol said.
The Corvette entered the east dirt shoulder and overturned. Clayton, who wasn’t wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the vehicle, the highway patrol said.
This was 34th fatal crash the highway patrol has investigated this year; 37 people have died in the crashes.
