DUI Rollover Crash Kills Two in Northern Nevada

Another horrible T-bone rollover crash in Nevada left two people dead over the weekend. This vehicle accident, a suspected DUI crash in Reno, happened in the evening on Saturday. The accident occurred in the Glendale Park area, at the big intersection of Rock Boulevard and Mill Street. Early reports from police indicate that a little past eight o’clock in the evening a vehicle blew through a red light as it was heading in the northern direction on Rock Boulevard. That vehicle, the one which allegedly ran the red light, struck another in the intersection, t-boning it and causing it to roll off of the road and into the undeveloped land there. The two passengers of this vehicle died right there on the side of the road, according to Reno Police. According to one of the news reports on this Nevada DUI rollover death,

“The man who ran the red light was transported to a nearby hospital . . . his injuries appear to be non-life threatening.

Officials said the man showed signs of being under the influence of alcohol, and they expect he will be booked into the Washoe County Jail for two counts of DUI causing death when he is released from the hospital.

The suspect driver is still in the hospital, according to Monday’s statement, and he will be identified once he is released.
