On Monday October 8, 2018 shortly before 7:00 PM, Nevada Highway Patrol Troopers responded to a crash on Highway 50 at Highlands Drive in Mound House (between Carson City and Dayton) involving a vehicle that struck a pedestrian.
Preliminary investigation shows that a red 2016 Ford F-150 pickup was traveling westbound in the left-hand travel lane of Highway 50 west of Highlands Drive.
A pedestrian was walking northbound across Highway 50, outside of a crosswalk, and walked into the path of the F-150 pickup. The left front of the Ford pickup struck the pedestrian in the travel lane.
The pedestrian (Manuel Jesus Sepulveda, 41 year-old Carson City Resident) succumbed to the injuries he sustained in the crash and was pronounced deceased at the scene. The driver of the F-150 remained at the scene and is cooperating with the investigation. Both westbound travel lanes were shut down during the investigation.
Traffic was rerouted until the roadway was fully reopened at 10:30 PM.
