California Highway Patrol says a Fallon driver was killed in a car accident near Bridgeport west of Highway 395 on Wednesday morning. A passenger suffered moderate injuries.

Troopers say 51-year-old Linda Sue Fulp was speeding west on State Route 167 around 5:30am, when she failed to slow down for a stop sign. The car she was driving, a 2004 Oldsmobile Alero, went airborne, made a hard landing on Lundy Lake Road, went off the road then rolled several times causing severe damage to the entire sedan.

Fulp died at the scene while the passenger, 21-year-old Sabrina Maria Castleberry of Lancaster, California was treated and released from Mammoth Hospital.

Troopers say several empty alcoholic containers were found inside the Alero, and that alcohol appears to be involved in the actual accident.
