FALLON, NV - A Fallon man was killed in a crash on Highway 95 Wednesday evening.
The Highway Patrol says 27-year-old Michael D. Post was driving a Ford Explorer shortly after 5pm near the intersection with St. Clair Road. Troopers say he crossed the center line into the opposite lane, and hit a Freight-liner tractor pulling a 53-foot trailer.
Post wasn't wearing a seat-belt and was killed at the scene; the driver of the big rig is not hurt.
The accident closed both directions of the highway for several hours while troopers from the Major Accident Investigation Team completed their on-scene portion of the crash investigation. They don't know why Post crossed the center line.
Witnesses or those with additional information are encouraged to call Trooper Kris Satterwhite @ (775) 689-4682 regarding case number NHP-110915180.
