Motorists created dust cloud at accident

Last Friday afternoon I was once again on my journey from Carson City to Stagecoach as I do every day. In the Dayton Valley Mark Twain area, there was a traffic accident that required two CareFlight helicopters, highway patrol, ambulance, rescue team and the Lyon County Sheriff's Department.

During this time while waiting for the clearing of the wreckage, there were numerous vehicles who were not willing to wait for the clearing that decided to leave the traffic lines and take the dirt road located next to the highway, causing excessive amounts of dust blowing everywhere.


Did these people want to see the accident up close? Or perhaps they were just in a hurry to get to their destination.

These people should be ticketed or at least not allowed to have access to the dirt road during this time of emergency.

We need to let our crews do their jobs dust free.
