Bicyclists Killed-Troopers Mistakes

FILE - In this Dec. 10, 2020, file photo, Nevada Highway Patrol investigate the scene of a fatal crash involving multiple bicyclists and a box truck along U.S. Highway 95 southbound near Searchlight, Nev. A Las Vegas TV station reports that highway patrol troopers investigating a crash that killed five bicyclists on a stretch of Nevada highway didn't suspect the driver of the box truck that hit them was impaired, even though a blood test later found he had a potentially lethal level of methamphetamine in his system.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Troopers investigating a crash last year that killed five bicyclists on a stretch of Nevada highway did not suspect the driver of the box truck that hit them was impaired, although a blood test later found he had a potentially lethal level of methamphetamine in his system, a Las Vegas television station reported.

KLAS-TV said it reviewed hours of trooper body-camera video, photos, internal documents and court records about the wreck that resulted in an agreement that let driver Jordan Alexander Barson plead guilty to two counts of driving under the influence causing death. He originally faced 14 felonies.
