The Nevada Highway Patrol continues to investigate a deadly crash that took the life of a Fernley man.
Twenty-two year old Gregory Blackburn was heading eastbound on Interstate 80 around 1:55 am Saturday morning, Nov. 7 when the black 1996 Dodge Ram he was driving struck a light pole and over turned near mile marker 42. Troopers said that Blackburn drove off the right side of the road before encountering the pole.
Blackburn was unrestrained at the time of the crash and as a result, he was partially ejected from the cab of the truck and pronounced dead at the scene. No other vehicles are believed to be involve.
