Jarred Johnson and Jaime Ramirez Killed in Reno Accident on Interstate 80
Reno, Nevada (January 23, 2021) On Friday, police confirmed that Jarred Johnson, 30, and Jaime Ramirez, 37, died in a three-vehicle crash on Interstate 80 near Gold Ranch Road.
Moreover, Interstate 80 was impassible early Friday morning due to the tragic crash.
Authorities eventually allowed passage to both lanes.
Furthermore, police are still conducting an investigation to know the possible cause of the Reno crash.
Preliminary report state that a white 2015 Mercedes-Benz sedan, driven by Ramirez of Woodland, and a black 2004 GMC Sierra pickup, driven by Johnson of Truckee, travelled west on I-80.
Subsequently, Ramirez rear-ended the pickup truck, which then struck a guardrail.
The NHP reported that a fight ensured between Ramirez and Johnson, where then Ramirez got in the GMC pickup and drove off eastbound in the westbound lanes.
Ramirez got out of the GMC pickup and attempted to carjack several vehicles.
Afterward, Ramirez crossed over the guardrail on the southside of Interstate 80 west, then went down the embankment and entered the #1 travel lane of eastbound I-80.
As a result, Ramirez was hit by a silver 2003 Dodge Ram pickup.
Both men’s cause of death was blunt force injuries.
