Officers still investigating after driver killed losing control around curve


A truck driver lost his life last weekend after losing control on a curve and overturned onto a shed. 

The accident happened on May 23rd just after 5 a.m. in Goldfield, Nevada. 

According to ABC 8 News, 30-year-old trucker, Sonu Sonu, was driving north on US-95 when he lost control on a curve. The semi truck then veered off the road, struck a sign, drove through a concrete barrier wall, overturned, and landed on a wooden shed, which separated the tractor from the trailer. 

The truck was hauling calcined kaolin at the time of the wreck, a powdered white non-plastic material, which spilled during the crash. 

Sonu was killed in the crash. Their passenger was transported to a nearby hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Officers are still investigating the incident.  If you were a witness to this incident, or have any information regarding the crash, please contact Trooper Katherine Shampang at (775) 482-6330 or [email protected].
