There was another high speed crash at Spooner Junction late Wednesday night. Spooner Junction seems to have more than its share of smashed vehicles with people trapped inside them. An NHP Trooper told Carson City Journal that a man driving a sedan had just gotten off of work and fell asleep at the wheel. As he approached Spooner Junction from the south he rear-ended a car stopped at the stoplight. The impact catapulted her car forward while the man’s car careened off and around the wreckage.
Fortunately neither the male driver, nor the female in the stopped car, was seriously injured. Spooner Junction is a very wide place in the road for both I-580 and South 395 which requires attentive and alert driving. Lowering the speed limit through that intersection could reduce the danger. It might be worth considering.
