WELLS — Two people died after a U-Haul box truck struck a semi-truck on U.S. Highway 93 Monday afternoon.
Nevada Highway Patrol Sgt. Jeff Howell said the crash occurred at 1:30 p.m. about 27 miles north of Wells.
“It looks like the U-Haul box van was traveling south towards Wells and a commercial motor vehicle was traveling north towards Jackpot and for unknown reasons the U-Haul crossed the center line into the northbound lane and there was a head-on collision,” Howell said.
There was one occupant in each vehicle, and both people were declared dead at the accident scene Monday.
The NHP has not released their identities.
