The Nevada Highway Patrol reported Christmas Eve that a rollover accident claimed the life of 50-year-old Ely resident Richie Zabriskie in Lincoln County.

It was assumed the accident took place around 4 p.m. Christmas Eve.

Zabriskie was driving a 1986 Jaguar and was ejected from the vehicle after it went up an embankment near mile marker 97, about a mile north of Caliente, said Sheriff Kerry Lee.

Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputies pronounced Zabriskie dead at the scene.
