A Wellington woman was killed on Saturday after she was thrown from a vehicle during a rollover collision just east of the Douglas County line.
Virginia Shrum, 43, was a passenger in a 2010 Toyota Venza at around 5:26 p.m. that was westbound on Highway 208 about a mile from Jack Wright Pass.
According to the Nevada Highway Patrol’s initial investigation, the Toyota’s 17-year-old driver left the right side of the roadway onto the shoulder and overcorrected causing the Venza to skid sideways and rollover.
Shrum wasn’t belted in and was ejected from the Toyota. The driver was able to climb from the wreckage on his own.
The Nevada Highway Patrol’s Northern Command West Multi-Disciplinary Investigation and Reconstruction Team is investigating the collision.
