GARDNERVILLE - A driver was killed in an accident Tuesday night just north of Kingsbury Grade on State Route 206.

At 10:33 p.m., Nevada Highway Patrol troopers were dispatched to a vehicle accident rollover on Foothill Road (SR 206) about one mile north of Kingsbury Grade (SR 207).

The investigation found that a 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling south on SR 206 and, for unknown reasons, drifted off the west side of the highway, over-corrected traveling off the east side of the highway and vaulted over a barbwire fence. The Tahoe overturned, ejecting the single male occupant. The vehicle struck a horse trailer and a barn, catching fire. The driver was pronounced dead on scene. Once the next-of-kin have been notified, authorities will release the name of the deceased driver.

Witnesses to the accident or anyone with additional information are encouraged to call the Department of Public Safety-Communications Center at 775-687-0400 regarding case no. NHP 1104261728.
