Kingsbury Grade was reopened to traffic 6:10 p.m. Thursday after being closed for around four hours due to a three-motorcycle collision that resulted in a fatality.

The Nevada Highway Patrol confirmed that one of the motorcyclists was killed in the collision. The other two were transported with minor injuries.

The collision was reported at 2:20 p.m. and occurred near the intersection with Palisades Drive, just down from the Chart House.

CPR was in progress on one of the victims as Tahoe-Douglas firefighters arrived on scene.

By 2:50 p.m., the Nevada Highway Patrol reported a rider had succumbed to injuries.

Tahoe-Douglas firefighters reported two riders were taken by ambulance for treatment. 

The highway could be closed for the next three hours for clean-up and for Nevada Highway Patrol troopers to conduct their investigation.

Motorists seeking an alternate route took Highway 88 to Picketts Junction and over Luther Pass to South Lake Tahoe. Motorists may also take Highway 50 over Spooner summit.

The Nevada Department of Transportation is on scene for the road closure.
