WINNEMUCCA, Nev. -- According to the Nevada Highway Patrol, there was a 26-vehicle pileup on Interstate 80, just three miles west of Winnemucca due to a sandstorm.

Officials say the storm and pileup killed one person, seriously injured several more, and sapped already-thin emergency resources Monday evening in the northern Nevada region.
