A motorcyclist died after a crash on Interstate 80 Wednesday afternoon.  Nevada Highway Patrol public information officer Duncan Dauber said the rider died shortly before 7:00 Wednesday evening; the crash was reported around 2:00 that afternoon.  Troopers say a commercial truck lost part of its load, leading two drivers to crash.

No injuries other than the motorcyclist’s have been reported.  The crash and the subsequent investigation forced westbound traffic on I-80 down to one lane and the northbound ramp from I-580 to westbound I-80 was closed for about two hours.
