Driver avoids injury in Kingsbury Grade big rig accident

Jim Grant

It may have looked bad but the driver of a big rig was not injured after he rolled his truck onto its side while driving down the Carson Valley side of Kingsbury Grade this morning, shortly before 8 a.m.

The accident created traffic delays for motorists in both directions. The driver of the truck was seen standing beside the rig and inside a tow truck following the accident. A Nevada Department of Transportation official also confirmed the driver was uninjured. There were no other vehicles involved in the accident.
