I want to take a minute to remind everyone about the importance of wearing your seat belt and also to please slow down when driving in or around a construction zone. A tragic accident occurred this weekend in Pahrump that left three people injured and one dead. According to the Nevada Highway Patrol, 29 year old driver Abelardo Garcia died at the scene of the crash on State Route 160 near Winery Road in Pahrump. Troopers went on to report that Garcia was driving a Toyota Camry near a construction zone early Sunday morning before striking traffic cones and colliding with an oncoming truck. Two passengers in Garcia’s vehicle were airlifted in serious condition to a Las Vegas hospital while Garcia (who was not wearing a seat belt) was pronounced dead at the scene. My thoughts go out to the family and friends of everyone involved in this accident.
