    US 395 is a dangerous highway almost the entire length of it. That Walker River Canyon has claimed it's share of truckers, and at least one bus that I know of.

    He was crossing an overpass and went through the guardrail and over the side.

    A bridge over the Walker River, on the south end of Bridgeport. For some reason, I thought it was up the canyon. Either way, the poor sob didn't make it. RIP
