Overton motorcycle crash leaves 2 dead

A motorcycle crash Tuesday afternoon in Overton left two people dead, the Nevada Highway Patrol said.

Just after 5:10 p.m., a Harley-Davidson motorcycle driven by a male driver and carrying a female passenger, was traveling north on Northshore Road south of mile marker 32, the highway patrol said. The driver, for an unknown reason, ran off the road, sending the motorcycle down a culvert. The driver and passenger were ejected.

The 59-year-old unidentified male driver and the passenger, Sherry L. Shive, 51, both of West Palm Beach, Florida, were pronounced dead on scene.

The Clark County coroner’s office will release the driver’s identity once his family has been notified.

This marks the 25th fatal crash investigated by the Nevada Highway Patrol southern command’s this year. Twenty-eight people died in the crashes.
