Airport Road wreck
One person was injured this morning in a single vehicle accident at Highway 395 and Airport Road. The driver of a yellow work truck was northbound on 395 when he lost control of the pickup, clipped a stop sign and landed in a field next to the highway at about 6:15 a.m. The driver of the pickup was transported by Care Flight helicopter. The pickup was well off the roadway so there was no need for traffic control.
