A Fallon teenager was killed in a single-vehicle rollover on Interstate 80 about 30 miles east of Reno.
Richard Porter, 18, died after he was taken Friday evening to
Washoe Medical Center in Reno.
The Nevada Highway Patrol said Porter was eastbound when he lost
control of the vehicle and traveled into the center lane.
He was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected.
Other passengers who were wearing seat belts escaped with minor
injuries, troopers said.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the 5:35 p.m.
accident, the NHP said.
