Drunk Driving While Texting Woman Slams into Construction Site, 2 Workers Hurt

Texting while driving
A woman has been arrested Wednesday on suspicion of texting while driving and drunken driving in connection with a crash that injured two construction workers near Reno.

Witnesses at the scene said the woman, later identified as 20-year-old Heather Dyer, drove straight into a construction site on I-580S and crashed into one of the construction equipment in a controlled work zone causing injury to two construction workers. The impact of the collision caused a wheel to fall off a vehicle and hit one of the two injured workers. Dyer, it would seem, got herself in trouble apparently because she was too distracted by her texting or she was too impaired or under the influence or she was both too drunk and too distracted while she was driving that she failed to see where she was going until it was way much too late for her to stop.

Ross Goodman Cleared By Las Vegas Police on Downtown Lot Deal

Daughter of Christine Von Sturm upon further investigation conclusively determined there was no improper movement taken by Goodman and Palazzo.

On Sep 14th 2004, there was an article from the Las Vegas Sun suggesting that there may have been something improper about a real estate transaction involving lawyers Ross Goodman and Louis Palazzo. http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2004/sep/14/police-probe-ross-goodman-deal/

However, the article does not reflect the investigation conclusively determining there was no such improper action and that Von Sturm’s daughter has made an official statement withdrawing any allegations.

The property in question was a $1.4 million downtown lot comprised of two parcels, located at 511 and 515 Las Vegas Blvd. South, belonging to then-85 year old Christina Von Sturm.
