A Susanville man, identified by the Nevada Highway Patrol as 30-year old John Abraham, was killed in a single vehicle crash that occurred on US 395 southbound just south of the North McCarran overpass in Reno Monday afternoon.
The NHP’s preliminary crash investigation indicates that Abraham was driving a 2004 silver Honda Civic southbound on US 395 approaching the North McCarran overpass.
Abraham lost control of the vehicle causing it to rotate. From the inside paved shoulder, the Honda crossed all lanes of travel and with its drivers side, struck a light pole that was mounted in the west dirt shoulder. Due to impact with the light pole, the Honda then rotated and came to rest on its wheels down a dirt embankment between US395 and the southbound US395 onramp from North McCarran.
Abraham succumbed to injuries sustained during the course of the crash and was pronounced dead at a Reno hospital.
