The Nevada Highway Patrol would like to recognize those motorists who stopped to either render first aid or provide other assistance at a recent crash scene on Interstate 80 involving a wrong-way driver.

On December 1, 2012, shortly before 9:00 pm, troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol responded to a call on Interstate 80 in the Fernley area involving a wrong-way driver.  After several attempts to stop the errant driver, she subsequently crashed into three other vehicles and died at the scene as a result of the traumatic injuries sustained in the event.  In addition to Trooper Dave Gibson and off-duty Trooper Rob Conely who were first on scene, several additional motorists stopped to either render first aid, assisted with warning approaching traffic to the crash scene area, or provided a sense of calm to those involved in the multiple-vehicle event before additional public safety personnel arrived on scene.

The senior leadership of NHP-Northern Command West would like to identify those who assisted in that tragedy and recognize them at a ceremony to be held sometime in the near future.  If you know of anyone who assisted our agency that evening, please contact Captain Susan Aller-Schilling by e-mail at saller-schilling@dps.state.nv.us or by calling her at (775) 689-4638 regarding case number NHP-121200751.
