California man killed in tractor trailer crash in Goldfield
GOLDFIELD, Nev. (KOLO) - A Santa Clara man died after crashing a tractor trailer on US-95 in Goldfield last Sunday.
It happened May 23, 2021 just after 5 a.m.
Troopers with the Nevada Highway Patrol responded to the crash at Crook Street. Investigators determined that the 30-year-old driver, Sonu Sonu, was heading northbound on US-95 and failed to maintain his lane around a curve. He continued straight off the road, hit a sign and then a concrete barrier wall. The truck tractor and trailer separated and the trailer hit a stop sign. The tractor overturned onto its roof and hit a wooden shed.
The truck was hauling calcined kaolin - a powdered white non-plastic material - which spilled during the crash.
Sonu was pronounced dead at the scene. A man in the passenger seat was taken to University Medical Center in Las Vegas with non-life-threatening injuries.
If you were a witness to this incident, or have any information regarding the crash, please contact Trooper Katherine Shampang at (775) 482-6330 or email@example.com.
