LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATION AREA
Motorcyclist Killed In Accident
[Printer-friendly text version]
The park received an emergency call reporting a motorcycle accident on the Callville Bay access road on the morning of Sunday, September 23rd. Rangers found the 22-year-old operator 75 feet from the road and down an embankment. Efforts were made to revive him, but suspended after 40 minutes when a local paramedic pronounced him dead. Speed was evidently a contributing factor. The park and Nevada Highway Patrol are investigating.
