Texas woman killed in Walker Lake wreck
June 5, 2017
A Texas woman died as the result of injuries she sustained in a Saturday morning collision on Highway 95 south of Walker Lake.
Preliminary investigation shows that a maroon 2013 Honda Accord was traveling northbound behind a white 2003 Peterbuilt semi-truck and a tan 2014 Fleetwood motor home.
The driver of the Honda Accord attempted to pass both the semi-truck and RV and entered the southbound lane in a marked passing zone.
As the Honda Accord was passing, the Peterbuilt also began to pass the slower Fleetwood RV at the same time. The driver of the Honda Accord, in an effort to avoid the Peterbuilt, began to steer to the right causing the right front of the Accord to strike the left front of the motor home.
The driver of the motor home braked and steered to the right causing it to go off the roadway and down the embankment and overturned. The Honda Accord also went down the embankment on the right side of the roadway. The semi driver pulled over and waited for NHP troopers.
The front passenger in the motor home, Rosalie Ann Powers, a 74-year-old resident of Livingston Texas, was transported by ambulance to a local hospital where she later died.
