Reno, Nevada – In a heart-wrenching legal proceeding, Dana Terry, a resident of Reno, has been sentenced to prison after a tragic incident that occurred on Mt. Rose Highway in November 2018 left three individuals dead. The harrowing events of that fateful day continue to haunt the community as justice is served.

On November 10, 2018, the Nevada Highway Patrol dispatched troopers to the scene near Thomas Creek Road, responding to a catastrophic crash that sent shockwaves through the region. Upon thorough investigation, it was determined that Dana Terry had been behind the wheel, driving under the influence of marijuana when he tragically veered across the center line, colliding head-on with an oncoming vehicle, instantly claiming the life of the other car’s driver.

The calamity didn’t end with the initial collision. Two compassionate Good Samaritans, witnessing the devastation, rushed to the aid of Terry and the first victim. Amid the chaos, another vehicle approached, oblivious to the wreckage and individuals on the darkened highway. Tragically, this vehicle collided with Terry’s car, sending it into a spin that tragically claimed the lives of both Good Samaritans, compounding the tragedy.

The victims, identified as Brian Morris, Rodolfo Torres, and Craig Park, were not only beloved members of their families but also cherished contributors to their communities.

During the emotionally charged sentencing, relatives of each of the three victims shared moving accounts of the profound impact their loved ones had on their families and the broader community. Judge Tammy Riggs, presiding over the case, imposed a prison sentence of 15 years upon Dana Terry, with the possibility of parole after serving five years.
