in the Wind
Road: Hwy 395, 4 miles south of Minden, Nevada
Location: Minden, Nevada
Date of Accident: ?
Inscription: "♥X0X0 In Memory"
Description: This is another standard white wooden cross with a wreath made of fake blue & white flowers. A small white plastic fence forms a pseudo grave at the base of the cross. The victimís name was written on the cross with a black marker, but the harsh conditions of this windswept highway have worn away their identity. Only the hugs and kisses remain.
Analysis: This is the type of highway that lulls its victims to sleep. I suspect this happened to our mystery casualty. After a day of gambling in Reno, the victim took a nap at 75 mph and woke up just in time to die.
