On Wednesday, July 3, 2019, at approximately 12:05 AM, NHP Troopers were dispatched to a serious injury crash on US-6 and Mineral County mile marker 4, near Montgomery Pass, involving two commercial vehicles.
Preliminary investigation shows that a red 2010 Volvo tractor-trailer was traveling east on US-6, approaching Mineral County mile marker 4, in the single eastbound travel lane. For an unknown reason, the commercial vehicle left the roadway, re-entered the roadway, and overturned. The commercial vehicle came to rest across all travel lanes on its right side.
Approximately three minutes later, a red 2017 Peterbilt tractor-trailer was traveling eastbound on US-6, approaching the overturned Volvo tractor-trailer. The Peterbilt struck the Volvo, splitting the Volvo into two. The driver of the Peterbilt (Dario Baez, a 53-year-old Madera resident) succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Due to the extent of the debris, US-6 was closed for an extended period of time. Traffic was rerouted to the outside shoulder until all travel lanes were reopened at 2:50 PM.
The Nevada Highway Patrol is seeking additional witnesses to this crash. If you were a witness to this incident or have any information regarding this collision, please contact the Nevada Highway Patrol Multi-Disciplinary Investigation and Reconstruction Team (M.I.R.T.) at firstname.lastname@example.org and reference NHP Case #190700180.

Posted by Seth Conners
According to a press release from Dan Gordon at Nevada Highway Patrol, over the next two weeks, Reno Area, Carson City, Douglas County, Lyon County and Churchill County residents can expect to see additional law enforcement presence. Nevada Highway Patrol has joined forces with law enforcement agencies throughout the state to concentrate on impaired driving, and has an important message for the public: don’t rely on the luck of the Irish, if you drive impaired, you will be arrested.
If you are going to drink, DON’T drive. Even “buzzed” driving is Drunk Driving. Call a cab, take a bus, call a sober friend……Don’t put yourself or anyone else in danger!
In efforts to achieve “Zero Fatalities” this St. Patrick’s Day, drivers and riders are encouraged to abide by the following guidelines:
designate a sober driver before drinking;
use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member or use public transportation if impaired;
take advantage of local sober ride programs;
call 911 if an impaired driver is spotted on the road;
take the keys or assist in making other arrangements for someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired.

Nevada Highway Patrol gearing up for Impaired Drivers
Nevada Highway Patrol Joins Forces to Crack Down on Impaired Drivers Over The Super Bowl Weekend
submitted by the Nevada Highway Patrol
Impaired Driving Enforcement Effort Jan 22 – Feb 8, 2016
Over the next two weeks, Northern Nevada residents can expect to see double or even triple the normal law enforcement presence. The Nevada Highway Patrol has joined forces with law enforcement agencies statewide to crack down on impaired driving, and has an important message for the public: if you’ll be drinking, designate a sober driver, and if you drive impaired, you will be arrested.
What seems like a small buzz can have deadly consequences when taking to the roadways. Illegal drugs, prescription drugs, over-the-counter medicines and lack of sleep can also impair your ability to drive safely. Law enforcement wants to remind motorists to always drive and ride sober or use a designated driver to reach your destinations safe.
Increasing law enforcement presence during these weeks supports the overall state goal of reaching Zero Fatalities. Northern Nevada residents can help us reach that goal by following these safety guidelines:
designate a sober driver before drinking; use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member or use public transportation if impaired
take advantage of local sober ride programs; call 911 if a drunk driver is spotted on the road
take the keys or assist in making other arrangements for someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired
Joining Forces enforcement is paid for by Nevada-Department of Public Safety, Office of Traffic Safety.
