Collision Near Mile Marker 305 Kills Jessica Duncan of Elko
Elko, NV (June 29, 2022) – On June 18, Jessica Duncan, 40, of Elko, lost her life in a two-vehicle crash on Interstate 80, approximately two miles east of Elko.
The authorities say that a combination tractor-trailer commercial motor vehicle was westbound on the freeway near mile marker 305 in the right travel lane.
At the same time, a tan Toyota Corolla, driven by Duncan was westbound on the freeway in the left travel lane, approaching the commercial motor vehicle.
The commercial motor vehicle drove into the left lane to pass a slower vehicle. Then, the Toyota swerved to the left avoiding a possible collision with the commercial motor vehicle.
However, the Toyota drifted off the roadway into the center median. Reports say that the Toyota’s driver overcorrected to the right, crossed over both lanes in front of the commercial motor vehicle where it finally ran off the roadway to the right and overturned.
Unfortunately, Jessica Duncan was not wearing a seatbelt during the traffic incident. The impact of the collision ejected her from the vehicle as it overturned. She died at the scene.
The authorities are still investigating the traffic collision near mile marker 305.
We at Sweet Lawyers extend our condolences to the loved ones of Jessica Duncan. May the bereaved find peace in this time of sorrow.
