No charges against driver of pickup after crash kills 21-year-old motorcyclist in Henderson


HENDERSON, Nevada — Authorities say the 47-year-old driver of a Ford F150 pickup truck was questioned but isn't facing charges in a crash that killed a motorcyclist on Easter Sunday on a freeway in Henderson.

The Clark County coroner on Monday identified the dead man as 21-year-old Roberto Orozco Jr. of Las Vegas.

A final report on Orozco's death could take several weeks, pending the results of blood toxicology tests.

Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Chelsea Stuenkel says the crash happened a little after 1 p.m. Sunday on northbound U.S. 95 near Wagon Wheel Drive.
