Woman killed in single-vehicle accident

Nye County-- A woman is killed in a single-vehicle accident in Nye County Friday afternoon.

The Nevada Highway Patrol says the 37-year-old, from Pahrump, was going northbound on U.S. 95 north of mile marker 33 in Nye County.

The right rear tire of the Mercedes failed, causing the driver to lose control. The Mercedes rotated clockwise and traveled off the east roadway edge. It overturned, partially ejecting the driver, who was not wearing a seatbelt.

The Mercedes came to rest on its wheels facing southeast in the natural desert terrain east of the roadway. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
