Last year, on June 24th, Lawrence Vallie was driving a tractor trailer north on US 95 when he approached the train crossing. He was not able to stop his truck and he skidded through the safety gates. He smashed into the second and third cars of the train which erupted into flames. 218 passengers were on the train and many jumped from their passenger cars as smoke and flames spread from the first two cars. The train, travelling at almost 80 miles per hour took nearly a half-mile to come to a stop.

Nevada Man Killed in Lake Mead Tunnel Construction Accident

Yet another person has been injured and another killed in a Lake Mead tunnel project accident yesterday. The name of the man killed is Thomas Turner, aged 44. The cause of death is still pending. The Lake Mead tunnel is being built to transport more water from the Boulder City, NV reservoir to drought stricken Las Vegas. This is the third tunnel from the man-made lake to bring drinking water to Southern Nevada. Lake Mead was created in 1936 when the Hoover Dam was built by the US Government.
