ZEPHYR COVE, NV (KOLO) - The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal crash on US 50 at Round Hill. Two pickups were involved in the crash that happened about 7 a.m. Thursday, June 13, 2019. One person, one of the drivers, was killed.

The other driver, Jerrad Dominguez, has been arrested for suspicion of DUI and will be booked into the Douglas County jail after being medically cleared from a hospital. He crossed the center line of US 50 and hit the other driver head-on, according to NHP, which originally reported a different suspect name.

The victim's name has not been released. There were no passengers in either truck.

The truck that was hit was carrying a trailer that detached in the crash, leaving a 150-foot debris field of tools and miscellaneous items. The road was closed for several hours, but has since been reopened.
