A 23-year-old North Platte man died in a crash Friday on U.S. 30 about 8 miles west of North Platte, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office.
A 911 call came in at 9:43 p.m. after a pickup and motorcycle collided at the intersection with Game Trail Road.
Deputies and first responders arrived and found Alexander Heiser, the motorcycle rider, unresponsive. He was taken to a hospital in North Platte, where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the pickup wasn't injured.
Accident reconstructionists from the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office say the pickup had pulled onto U.S. 30 from Game Trail Road, attempting to head west, when it collided with Heiser, who was going east on U.S. 30 and couldn't avoid the collision.
Drugs and alcohol were not suspected to be factors in the crash.
