There was just a terrible fatal car accident in Northern Nevada a few days ago, one that took the lives of four different people in two different cars, and one a girl just 3 years old. Few details have been released yet that we’ve seen, just one of the driver’s names and the ages of the other individuals who were involved in the accident. Some very basic pieces of information have been shared regarding how the accident happened, but not much beyond the police’s first impression of what happened in the accident, not much on why or who may have been at fault. First we’ll start with what is initially said to have happened in this fatal vehicle accident in Nevada. The accident happened in Spring Creek, in northeastern Nevada, on Route 227. It was this last Tuesday night, one vehicle was turning left when a different car smashed into the right side of the first car. The first vehicle rolled and slammed into a light pole so hard it took it down.
The who of the accident is heart breaking. The driver of the car making the left hand turn was the only person to be identified as a resident of Spring Creek named Jessica Layton. She and a girl of 6 are the only two survivors of the accident. Both needed medical attention, but at least walked away with their lives. The vehicle driven by Layton had two passengers killed, the 3 year old girl mentioned before and a man aged 19. Both passengers of the other vehicle, the one not making the left, were killed. They were a 25 year old woman and a 27 year old man.
