RENO, NV - Washoe County sheriff's deputies have made an arrest in a fatal crash off the Mount Rose Highway last year.

He was arrested last month in connection with being a minor with alcohol at a party, and that's when investigators wrapped their investigation into charges related to the 2011 crash.

That crash happened November 7th in the Galena Creek area. Deputies believe Sigstad was speeding and had been drinking while driving a truck with two teen friends, and went off the road. 17-year-old Bryce Conway was killed.
