March 23, 2014
Two people on a motorcycle that slammed into a truck late Saturday are unlikely to survive the crash, according to Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong.
Also according to Furlong:
Deputies tried to chase the motorcycle three times Saturday after the driver was spotted speeding on Fifth Street. Each time, the driver sped away at a high rate of speed. The third time, he T-boned the truck at Fairview Drive and Roop Street about 10:40 p.m..
Sections of each road remained closed at 11:50 p.m.
“We have multiple helicopters on scene,” Furlong said. “Quite the mess.”
