Accidents snarl Kingsbury Grade

A six-car pileup and several cars that swerved off the road on Monday night forced the closure of Highway 207 – Kingsbury Grade – for nearly two hours.

Also, a head-on accident at about 7:50 p.m. near Grass Lake Road on Highway 89 sent three people to Barton Memorial Hospital. The extent of the injuries was unknown at press time.

No major injuries were reported at the Kingsbury Grade accidents, according to a Nevada Highway Patrol dispatcher. However, traffic was backed up on both sides of the grade as tow trucks responded to Buchanan Street, about two miles from the top of Daggett Summit. The six-car accident happened at about 6:45 p.m. as snow began accumulating on the road.

The Highway was reopened at about 8:30 p.m.
