It was Saturday, February 27, not Feb 26, and at 5:15 p.m. NV time, we were stopped 3 1/2 miles from the accident site. We didn't move for two minutes short of two HOURS. When we did move by the accident site, they were loading the camper trailer, a large fifth wheeler type, onto a long semi flat bed. The vehicle pulling the trailer had already been moved from the area. We went past the accident about 7:30 p.m. going 10 miles an hour from where we were stopped. There were NO places wehicles could have exited from the freeway. I have no idea how long the back up went. The highway patrol number that I called at 6:30 p.m. said it was "a trailer accident with two injuries, and they were in the process of moving the vehicles off the freeway, possibly another 30 minutes before traffic started moving."
That is what I know. My husband and I sat in our car for two hours, missing the birthday dinner with my brother and his wife!

February 27, 2010. I don't know why it's posted as 2006. Around 5:00 p.m. Pacific time, my wife and I were driving Northbound I-15 from Las Vegas headed for St. George UT, when we were stopped 10 miles south of Mequite NV. We were sitting on about a 5-6 mile stretch of highway where we could see vehicles in front and behind us as far as the eye could see. After sitting there for about 45 minutes having no idea what had happened up ahead, I called 411 to get the number for the Mesquite Police Dept. They said that a truck and travel trailer had gotten into an accident and was blocking both lanes of traffic, also saying that it was going to be cleaned up in 20 minutes, and that traffic would be moving again. Needless to say, we remained there for about 2 1/2 hours before traffic started moving again. So much for trying to beat the Nascar traffic home.
