A local businessman was involved in a head-on collision near Cattail Cove on Highway 95 that had traffic backed up for several hours early this morning.
Parker Live spoke to his wife Terri Watts early this morning and his daughter Amy this afternoon. Gustafson is currently in hospital in Las Vegas for leg surgery. Amy says he is coherent and she was able to speak to him by phone before he went in for surgery.
“His femur is jammed into his knee so orthopedics in Vegas are going to do surgery,” she said.
The accident involved Gustafson’s van and a smaller white vehicle. The driver of the white vehicle reportedly died at the scene.
