A fatal collision had traffic down to one lane northbound on Interstate 580 for three hours in Carson City just south of the Fairview Lane interchange, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol.
The collision was reported at 11:07 a.m. Sunday and the lane was still closed nearly two hours later.
A traffic camera overlooking the collision shows a trooper investigating what appears to be a downed motorcycle.
The Record-Courier has reached out to the Nevada State Police Highway Patrol regarding the crash.
An hour earlier, a tipped over hay truck trailer blocked the merge lane from Highway 395 onto Highway 88 on Sunday morning.
The truck was turning from the main highway onto 88 when its second trailer went over spilling hay bales all over the lane around 10:10 a.m.
Traffic at the time was fairly light, and Douglas County deputies coned off the turn lane as motorists figured out how to get around the incident.
