Nevada Highway Patrol report a 44-year old Alamo woman was killed Feb. 17 in a collision with a semi-truck a little south of Alamo on U.S. 93.
Troopers are withholding the names of those involved until notification of next of kin.
The report states about 8:58 p.m., a black 1997 Acura four-door was northbound on U.S. Highway 93 near mile marker 36, which is near the Buckhorn Ranch turnoff, and collided with a southbound brown 2007 Peterbilt tractor pulling a 2007 utility box trailer hauling a load of onions.
Sgt. Guy Davis reported, for undetermined reasons the black Acura crossed the center line into the southbound lane. The truck driver steered to the left in an effort to avoid a collision, but the right front of the Acura hit the left front of the Peterbilt. The Acura went off the west side of the road and hit a dirt embankment, and the Peterbilt continued down the highway before coming to a stop a short distance further, also on the west side. There was no fire in either vehicle.
The Acura was driven by a 40-year old male, and his passenger, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was a 44-year woman. Names and addresses not given.
Nevada Highway Patrol, Lincoln County Sheriff’s department and Pahranagat Valley Volunteer Ambulance and Fire Department responded. NDOT did traffic control for several hours.
The 40-year male was taken to UMC in Las Vegas by Mercy Air, which met the PV ambulance at a pre-determined location.
The unnamed Peterbilt driver was a 47-year old man heading from Idaho to Las Vegas.
NHP says the investigation is continuing.
