LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — An 80-year-old Oregon man died of injuries about a week after a motorcycle crash in central Nevada’s Lander County, according to Nevada State Police.

Jerrell Moore of Roseburg, Oregon, crashed on June 19 on U.S. Highway 50 in Lander County, about eight miles east of the town of Austin.
