NHP Investigating Fatal Crash


A mid-morning crash on Sunday, January 17, 2021, has left one woman dead. The Nevada Highway Patrol says the accident happened at about 11:15 a.m., involving three vehicles on US-95A at Quince Avenue in Silver Springs.

Investigators say that a green 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup was southbound on US-95A, but failed to slow for a black 2014 Nissan Titan pickup as it was waiting to make a left turn from US-95A onto Quince Ave. To avoid hitting the Nissan, the Dodge tried to go around the vehicle, driving into the northbound lane of US-95A, striking a white 2015 Peterbilt commercial vehicle head-on.

Seventy-two-year old Jacqulyn Cook of Silver Springs was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was hurt.
