Victims killed in Kingsbury collision identified

Staff Reports

A staff member at Genoa Lakes Ranch Course has been identified as one of the people killed in a fiery wreck July 4 on Kingsbury Grade.

Moriah Ann Williams, 38, of Carson City has been identified by the Nevada Highway Patrol as a passenger in the vehicle.

The driver was identified as Carson City resident Thomas William Guard, 52, who also was pronounced dead at the scene.

The collision occurred at 9:26 p.m., when Nevada Highway Patrol troopers responded to Kingsbury Grade about two miles up from Foothill Road.

The NHP’s preliminary investigation shows that a gray 2012 Scion Xb was traveling eastbound down Kingsbury Grade. A white 2013 Ford F150 was traveling westbound up Kingsbury Grade. Guard, who was driving the Scion, allowed the vehicle to cross over the double yellow lines into the westbound travel lane causing the two vehicles to collide head on, according to the NHP.

The female driver and the male passenger in the Ford F150 were both transported by CareFlight to a Reno hospital with serious, but non life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Scion and both occupants in the F150 were wearing seat belts.

The passenger in the Scion was not restrained. There also was a dog in the Scion that succumbed to injuries from the crash.
