According to the Nevada Highway Patrol, Michelle Marie Parsley-McClelland, 22, died as result of the 8:08 a.m. accident 15 miles east of Fernley.
Nevada Highway Patrol Sgt. Tom Ames said Parsley-McClelland was eastbound in a Chevrolet Tahoe when she attempted to pass a commercial vehicle and lost control. The Tahoe rolled, ejecting Parsley-McClelland. She was pronounced deceased at the scene.
