Dorazio said the front wheel of his 2009 Suzuki DL650 motorcycle started wobbling and he lost control. The motorcycle fell onto its right side and slid across the center line, ejecting Dorazio. The motorcycle came to rest on the eastbound gravel shoulder.
Fishlake Valley Ambulance responded and transported Dorazio to Nye Regional Medical Center for chest and arm injuries. Dorazio was later flown to Renown Medical Center in Reno for further treatment.
