Jake’s Hill collision turns out to be minor

Staff Reports

A reported head-on collision of a pickup and a semi-truck on jake’s Hill on Wednesday evening turned out to be minor, though it could have been much worse.

Firefighters and law enforcement officers responded to the collision on Highway 395 near the intersection with Rock Bottom Road.

The collision was reported at 6:41 p.m.

It appeared there was a vehicle pulled over in the southbound lanes, and that the semi pulled over to avoid the parked vehicle.

Skid marks from the incident could be seen in the downhill lane, but nobody got hit.

That stretch of Highway 395 between Gardnerville and Holbrook Junction has been the scene of many deadly collisions in the past.
