Barrett William Admire, 10, of Bellevue, was killed in a single car rollover Sunday, Nov. 28, on U.S. Highway 93, abut 20 miles south of Wells, Nev., said Nevada State Trooper Rocky Gonzalez.
"At around 1:50 p.m. Mark Scheving, 48, was travelling southbound on U.S. 93. Preliminary investigation reveals, due to driver inattention, Scheving allowed his GMC Yukon to drift off the east pavement edge," Gonzalez said in a press release. "Scheving overcorrected to the left causing the vehicle to rotate counter-clockwise and skid to the west pavement edge before overturning."
Gonzalez said Barrett was not wearing a seatbelt during the course of the rollover, and was ejected. The boy was air lifted to Northeastern Nevada Regional Hospital in Elko where he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Scheving, along with Lisa K. Admire, 44, Caitlyn Admire, 10, and Gavin Admire, 12, were also transported to the same hospital with various injuries. All occupants were from Bellevue. The accident is still under investigation, Gonzalez said.
Scheving is co-owner of Chester and Jake's Flown in Fresh restaurants in Bellevue and Ketchum with his business partner Steve Hogan.
"This is a difficult time for Lisa and Rob Admire, Barrett's father" said Tanya Hogan. "As everyone knows what a tragedy it is to lose somebody. The void that they have, the ability to offer comfort and hope gives them something to look forward to. For Caitlyn and Gavin and Mark, their loss is just as giant. It's like a clock that looses its cog and there is nothing to replace it. Time just doesn't move the same anymore."
