Motorcyclist dies following March 22 Carson City accident

A motorcyclist whose passenger, Audrey Rugamas of South Lake Tahoe, died following a March 22 accident in Carson City, has died from his injuries, the Nevada Highway Patrol says.

The NHP says Andrey Gallegos, 20, of Sparks, hospitalized with severe injuries, was taken off life support last Sunday. Rugamas, 21, was taken off life support on March 26.

Carson City authorities said Gallegos had been spotted speeding multiple times prior to the accident. The motorcycle slammed at high speed into a pickup at Fairview Drive and Roop Street, a busy Carson City intersection.
