Carson woman identified as victim in Mottsville fatal accident

The victim in a fatal rollover accident on Mottsville has been identified as Carson City resident Lynette Lucille Cieri, 63.

Cieri was westbound on Mottsville when she entered the north dirt shoulder before overcorrecting back onto the highway and overturning, ejecting her, according to information released by Nevada Highway Patrol Spokeswoman Barabara Stapleton.

A preliminary investigation indicates that Cieri wasn't wearing her seatbelt, and may have been going faster than the posted speed limit of 45 mph.

Mottsville was closed for five hours in both directions for the investigation.

Witnesses or anyone with additional information are encouraged to contact Trooper Kris Satterwhite of the Major Accident Investigation Team at (775) 434-4895 and reference accident No. 121005638.
