Fatal Fallon Multi-Vehicle Accident on Highway 50
FALLON, NV (October 30, 2019) – A person died while another sustained injuries in a multi-vehicle accident on Highway 50 on October 29.
The three-car collision involving a semi-truck shut down a portion of Highway 50 near Sheckler Road.
According to reports, the collision between a cement semi-truck, a mini-van, and a sedan occurred at about 7:30 a.m.
The westbound mini-van driver on Highway 50 stopped in front of the semi, which led the truck driver to veer to the left to avoid crashing into the mini-van. However, the semi struck the mini-van and side-swiped the sedan. The impact led the truck driver to lose control, drove across the highway and collided with a pole and gas line before it drove down into an embankment.
The collision caused the semi-truck driver his life. Meanwhile, the mini-van driver sustained a broken arm.
Authorities are still investigating the crash. However, the troopers clarified that the unidentified driver may have been ejected from the truck’s can during the collision or he got pushed out because of the explosions.
The collision also damaged several power lines and 1400 customers are affected.
According to Southwest Gas, the crash led them to reduce the natural gas supply in the area.
