Driver Dead Before Train Strike

A truck driven by a Fernley man crashed off a cliff, and then was hit by a train on Saturday. It happened in Storey County. Officials there say the driver, 27 year old Saul Arellano, apparently was killed in the crash off the cliff. His truck plunged about 50 feet south of the Truckee River and landed upside down next to the railroad tracks. It was then clipped by an eastbound Union Pacific freight train.
