News: 3 die following wrong-way, multi-vehicle collision on U.S. 95

NYE COUNTY, NV – Three people are dead following a multi-vehicle crash on U.S. 95 near Amargosa Valley Sunday, according to KLAS.

According to police, the allegedly impaired male driver of a Volvo was traveling north when it entered the southbound lanes of U.S. 95 around 11:30 a.m. A person driving a truck towing a camper attempted to avoid colliding with the Volvo by pulling over on the side of the road. Despite their efforts, the truck was sideswiped by the Volvo. Neither of the truck’s two occupants was hurt.

A GMC Yukon driver also pulled over in an attempt to avoid hitting the Volvo. Like the truck driver, it was struck by the Volvo, but nobody inside was injured.

The Volvo headed east in the southbound lanes following the two collisions and collided with a Chrysler Mini Van. Of the van’s five occupants, three died at the scene. That included an adult male, a juvenile male, and a juvenile girl. An adult female and a juvenile male were injured and were transported to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Volvo collided with an additional vehicle, a camper van, which caused its two occupants to suffer minor injuries.

Police arrested the driver and took him to Pahrump Jail. They believed he was impaired at the time of the crash.
