A Dayton teenager was injured this morning after he was struck by a truck as he tried to cross Highway 50 East on his skateboard.
Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Blair Harkleroad said the accident happened
about 6:40 a.m. when the unidentified teen was in the center of the highway at
Riverboat Road and 50 East.
Michael Brammer, 42, of Dayton, was making a left turn onto the highway
from Riverboat Road when he struck the teen.
Harkleroad said the highschooler was alert and talking when authorities
arrived. As a precautionary measure, he was taken from the scene to a Reno
hospital by helicopter.
Troopers were not able to get the boy's name at the accident.
Eastbound traffic was reduced to one lane for about 90 minutes.
