2 Hurt in Washoe County Car Crash
WASHOE COUNTY, NV (October 21, 2019) – Two people suffered injuries in a rollover car crash on 580 Freeway on October 18.
The incident occurred just after 1:00 p.m. on 580 Freeway south near Bellevue Road in Washoe County.
According to authorities, a sedan driver headed south through the valley. He then drove into the median and the oncoming lane. A truck driver attempted to swerve his vehicle to prevent a crash. However, the sedan already struck the truck’s back end and caused it to overturn.
The collision left the truck driver with a broken arm while the other driver didn’t suffer serious injuries. Responders transported them both to Renown Regional Medical Center.
Meanwhile, the left lane remained open while the right lane is closed.
Authorities believe that alcohol may have played a role in the collision.
Staying within the lanes of the road is an extremely important rule of the road. If you feel yourself drifting into other lanes due to fatigue or any other reason, safely pull over and rest before continuing to drive. You can also call a friend or an Uber to pick you up if you feel like it would be unsafe to drive.
