A K9 alerted to the presence of either humans or narcotics.
As the woman was fleeing the scene she just ran straight into the side of a tractor trailer.
The two crashes were only 45 minutes apart.
Drivers are urged to enter and exit I-10 at downtown that weekend.
The wreck affected traffic for at least 10 hours.
The man is facing charges of attempted murder.
That's $98,000 worth of Ramen noodles.
The load was being hauled from Colorado to Florida.
His injuries were not life threatening.
"It was a deliberate act and wanton and reckless," said police.
Traffic on the roadway is comprised of 25% semi trucks.
Drivers are urged to avoid the area until further notice.
The woman failed to attend her court appearance and the driver's court date has still not been set.
The truck apparently kicked up a rock and it went through the woman's windshield.
The trucker will soon be healthy enough to be transferred to a hospital closer to his family.
Officials say that downtown was basically shut down for the duration of the cleanup.
"I hope a fix is coming," said the CEO of the Nevada Trucking Association.
The hero driver's Marine and firefighting training kicked in.
