GARDNERVILLE, NV - Nevada Highway Patrol troopers are still investigating a crash that seriously hurt a pedestrian on US 395 Monday afternoon.
They say about 2:30, the pedestrian was walking in a crosswalk to an entrance to an O’Reilly vehicle parts store at Kings Lane. A white Toyota truck driven by Jack Wayne Hewlett, a 23-year-old Gardnerville resident, was waiting for the pedestrian to get to the other side of the crosswalk. While Hewlett was waiting in the number two travel lane, a gray Toyota Camry driven by Samantha Aguilar, a 24-year-old Reno resident, struck the rear of the white truck, causing the truck to move forward, hitting the woman walking across the street. The woman sustained serious injuries and was transported to Renown Regional Medical Center by Care Flight and is still being treated.
