A motorcyclist died Saturday on Spooner Summit.

The right lane of eastbound Highway 50 is closed about one mile east of the summit, with no estimated time of reopening.

The accident occurred about 12:30 pm Sept. 30.

Only the motorcyclist was involved. Authorities said speed may have been a factor.

Information on the rider was not available.

This weekend marks the annual Street Vibrations motorcycle event based in Reno, though rides are throughout the area, including the Tahoe basin.
