On 02/21/2022, at approximately 1915 hours, an unidentified white male adult was driving a maroon 1999 Oldsmobile Bravada, in the number one lane of southbound
US-395, north of the Nevada/California state line at an undetermined speed. The driver allowed his vehicle to drift off the east edge of the roadway, and the vehicle traveled onto the brush covered dirt median. As the vehicle traveled south through the median, it slid clockwise, dug into the soft dirt of the median, and began a roll over sequence. During the rollover sequence, the driver was ejected from the vehicle. A motorist ahead of the involved vehicle witnessed the collision, searched the vehicle for occupants, and called 911. Members of the Truckee Meadows Fire Department arrived at the scene and located the ejected driver. During the roll over and ejection, the driver suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene. Personnel from the Nevada Highway Patrol, Sierra Valley Fire Department, Sierra County Sheriff Department, Caltrans, and the California Highway Patrol also arrived at the scene and assisted with the investigation. During the investigation, it was determined that the driver was not wearing his safety belt while driving. This collision is still under investigation by the Sierra County Sheriff office and the California Highway Patrol.
