Police seek witnesses to Dayton accident

The Nevada Highway Patrol is seeking the public's help with a hit and run injury accident involving two vehicles that happened shortly before noon Monday on westbound Highway 50 in Dayton, between Enterprise Way and Segale Road.

According to Trooper Chuck Allen, it appears that a black Mercedes four-door sedan may have caused a yellow Toyota pickup truck to crash resulting in substantial injuries to that driver, Steven R. Lamarre, 32, of Dayton.

A friend of Lamarre's, following in a different vehicle, witnessed the accident and observed the black sedan speed away from the scene.

Troopers would like to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the crash or observed a driving pattern of the sedan before the accident or when the sedan continued west on Highway 50 from the scene.

Any one with information is asked to call 775-687-0400 or Trooper Eric Gallagher, 775-689-4661.
