Troopers recover marijuana from accident scene
WINNEMUCCA — Troopers from the Nevada Highway Patrol investigating the scene of a head-on collision near Denio on Wednesday (Sept. 22), allegedly discovered a cooler full of marijuana in the accident debris.
According to the report generated by the NHP, troopers responded to SR 140 for a two-vehicle, head-on collision in which two people were injured.
Trooper Peter Zach Peterson alleged the driver of the second vehicle told him he observed one of the occupants of the other vehicle kick out the back window and make a frantic search through the sagebrush.
Acting on that information, Peterson and Trooper Tony Roth made a search of the scene and found a blue cooler 150 feet from the accident.
They opened the cooler, which allegedly contained 20 vacuum-sealed packages of marijuana.
Following treatment and release from HGH, Roschann Antwann Greer, 34, of Tulsa, was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana and sale of marijuana. He was booked into the Humboldt County Detention Center on $15,000 bail.
Driver of motorhome takes a wild ride through the desert
WINNEMUCCA — A woman driving through Humboldt County in her motorhome took a wild ride after being struck from behind by another vehicle. The accident occurred on Tuesday, Sept. 28.
According to the report generated by the Nevada Highway Patrol, two vehicles were eastbound on Interstate 80 near the Rose Creek exit when a vehicle struck the motorhome from behind.
The driver reportedly told NHP he was drowsy and did not realize he was rapidly approaching the other, slower vehicle. Unable to avoid a collision, the right front of the vehicle struck the left rear of the motorhome.
The impact caused the motorhome to rotate counterclockwise and leave the paved portion of the roadway. The motorhome continued down the embanked median for hundreds of feet before crashing through a barbed-wire fence and hitting a concrete culvert. The force of the impact caused the motorhome to become airborne over the culvert – crashing down on the other side.
The driver of the motorhome was extracted by HGH EMS and transported to the hospital where she was kept overnight for observation.
A juvenile passenger from the car was also transported by EMS to the hospital as a precaution.
