Airport employee dies in crash

An Agate Bay man and Truckee Tahoe Airport District employee was killed Monday when his pickup truck lost control on Highway 28 in Carnelian Bay and hit a tree.

No other vehicles or passengers were involved in the accident.

Arron Michael Street, 28, was killed instantly from the impact of the crash according to authorities.

According to the California Highway Patrol’s accident report, Street was heading eastbound on Highway 28 from Tahoe City just after 11 p.m. at a high rate of speed when he attempted to make a righthand turn at Tallac but lost control and began slipping sideways. His 1989 GMC truck hit a large rock, which sent his vehicle airborne and into a tree.

Members of the Teller County Sheriff’s Office in Colorado notified Street’s next of kin of his death.

According to the Truckee-Tahoe Mortuary, his mother lives in Colorado and his father lives in San Jose.

He worked as an assistant manager with the Truckee Tahoe Airport District and had apparently lived in the Truckee-Tahoe area for the past year.

Arrangements for services are pending.

Call the mortuary for more information at 587-4342.
