WINNEUCCA — A local woman was killed today (Tuesday, Sept. 4) on 
Interstate 80 after her vehicle left the roadway, traveled down a steep 
embankment, then overturned. The accident occurred near milemarker 
181, just five miles east of the primary Winnemucca exit.
The woman was identified as Jenette Gleason, 59, of Winnemucca.
According to Sgt. Greg Johnson, of the Nevada Highway Patrol, Gleason 
was reported as an overdue traveler by her husband earlier in the morning 
after she failed to return home on time from a trip to Idaho. A passing 
commercial vehicle spotted Gleason's vehicle at the bottom of the 
embankment at about 9:45 a.m.
Johnson said from the preliminary investigation it appeared the vehicle 
was traveling westbound when it drifted off the south road edge, near the 
median, at which time the driver may have over-corrected to the right, 
regained the roadway, traveled broadside across both travel lanes, 
then left the roadway to the right side (north side). He added the
 vehicle traveled all the way to the bottom of the embankment before
 overturning at the bottom.
The accident remains under investigation. 
From Sept 4 2012
