A single vehicle rollover on U.S. Highway 95 left one dead on Saturday morning.
Law enforcement and emergency personnel were dispatched to mile marker 66 near Walker Lake for a single vehicle rollover with ejected occupants.
In a press release from Nevada Highway Patrol, the preliminary investigation report indicates that a silver 2010 Toyota Sienna was traveling northbound on Highway 95 when after passing a semi truck and trailer, rotated to the left and exited the west paved roadway shoulder where it overturned.
The Sienna was driven by 20-year-old Vancouver, Wash. resident, Nina Kiseleva. In the vehicle were five other occupants including her brother Ruvim Kiseleva, also from Vancouver and four family members visiting from Germany.
Upon collision, all occupants except Ruvim were either fully or partially ejected from the vehicle. According to the press release, it is believed that Ruvim was the only occupant wearing his seatbelt.
24-year-old Liane Kamer of Germany succumbed to injuries during the course of the crash and was died on scene. The other occupants were transported by ambulance to Mt. Grant General Hospital.
Due to weather conditions Hawthorne had been experiencing that day, military helicopters were brought in to transport all five occupants to a Reno hospital for treatment of serious to critical injuries.
The highway had been closed to traffic for several hours while the scene was being investigated.
