MESQUITE, Nev. - Nevada Highway Patrol troopers are investigating a fatal motorcycle accident northeast of Las Vegas.
NHP says the accident occurred at approximately 5:15pm on northbound Interstate 15 at mile marker 105 near Mesquite.
Troopers say a group of motorcycle riders pulled over to the side of the road to put on rain gear. Shortly after, a semi truck traveling along the interstate clipped one of the motorcycle riders. The victim, an unidentified male, died at the scene.
The accident shut down I-15 for a few hours. One lane remains closed at this time.
Some medical providers say they often deal with Hispanic patients who are afraid to seek medical care. It's hoped the opening of a new medical clinic will change that.
