Darrell David Daugherty, who has a home on Sandstone Drive, was pronounced dead at the scene of the two-car accident.
According to the Nevada Highway Patrol, Daugherty had just turned east onto Highway 208 in a blue 1993 Ford Taurus when he was hit by a gold 2000 Ford F-350 pickup also traveling east.

The accident is still under investigation by the Nevada Highway Patrol.
Anyone with information, is being asked to contact the Highway patrol at 688-2500.
