41-Year-Old Man Killed in Vehicle Crash on Interstate 80

WELLS, NV (March 8, 2022) – On Tuesday, a truck collision on Interstate 80 claimed the life of Edwin Jones, authorities said.

The vehicle crash took place on Interstate 80, approximately 2 miles east of Wells in northeast Nevada.

Furthermore, police said Jones was reportedly driving a 2021 Kenworth tractor-trailer headed west on Interstate 80.
