A Nevada Highway Patrol trooper was “nearly hit” by a wrong-way driver on US Route 50 near Carson City on Sunday, June 7, dashcam footage from the patrol vehicle shows.
“One of our CTM (Carson Tahoe Minden) Troopers was nearly hit by a wrong-way driver on US-50,” the Nevada Highway Patrol Facebook post said. “This was the second driver we stopped yesterday going the wrong way on the highway. Luckily, we were there to stop them before they could hurt or kill another motorist. Great work by our Troopers who put themselves in harm’s way to protect others.” Credit: Nevada Highway Patrol via Storyful
