Reno Resident Ejected in Vehicle Crash Near Winnemucca

On February 5, 2018, at approximately 7:30am, NHP Troopers responded to a fatal crash on I-80, approximately 27 miles west of Winnemucca, Nevada. 

 Preliminary investigation indicates Ms. Roberta Lynn Campbell-Underhill, age 53, from Reno, NV was driving a gray Toyota 4 Runner E/B on I-80 in the number one travel lane.  For unknown reasons, Ms. Campbell-Underhill allowed her vehicle to drift into the center media.  Ms. Campbell-Underhill overcorrected the vehicle back onto the highway which caused the vehicle to rotate in a clockwise direction.  The Toyota crossed both travel lanes and entered the right (south) dirt shoulder in a broadside manner and overturned.  The vehicle came to rest on its wheels facing southwest. 

 During rollover, Ms. Campbell-Underhill was ejected from the vehicle and sustained fatal injuries at the scene. 

 No other occupants were in the vehicle.
