Nevada trooper’s vehicle hit on slick I-80, then struck 3 more times
LOCKWOOD, Nev. (KOLO) -A Nevada State Police Trooper slowing on westbound Interstate 80 Sunday morning to respond to an injury crash was rear-ended by one vehicle and subsequently struck by three other vehicles.
It was part of a string of crashes that first closed westbound interstate 80 east of Lockwood and then restricted traffic to one lane. It fully reopened after about three hours.
“Luckily, everyone is okay,” said Nevada Highway Patrol public information officer Kim Smith. “Just a reminder with these winter conditions to please slow down.”
Everyone cooperated with the investigation, Smith said. The trooper was slowing to help at an injury accident at the time of the crash.
There were also accidents on eastbound Interstate 80 in that area.
