A man died Friday at the scene of a single-vehicle rollover crash in Jean.
Buddy Ray Noe II, 22, was a passenger in a Honda Civic traveling east on State Route 161 near mile marker 4. About 8:55 p.m., the Honda crossed the center line for unknown reasons and entered the westbound travel lane. The car rolled over and ejected Noe, who was not wearing a seat belt, the Nevada Highway Patrol said.
Speed or impairment do not appear to be factors in the crash, the Highway Patrol said.
The female driver, who was wearing her seat belt, suffered minor injuries and was not hospitalized.
This marks the 27th fatal crash resulting in 29 deaths in 2017 for the Highway Patrol’s southern command.
