Accident victim in satisfactory condition

Staff reports

According to Douglas County Deputy Rick Sousa, the truck was northbound on 395 with a load of sod purchased at Home Depot, just a quarter-mile south of the accident.

He said the late-model Chevy Silverado started to shake and when the driver attempted to slow down, he lost control and rolled the vehicle. At some point, the rear axle on the truck snapped and the truck landed right side up on the shoulder just east of the road.

Passenger Derek Cotrin walked away from the accident, which is under investigation according to Trooper Michael Primeaux of the Nevada Highway Patrol.
