Commercial vehicle and public bus accidents have been all over the news recently. Our sister office and blog has been writing about commercial vehicle accidents in Southern Nevada, and now we too find ourselves writing about a type of accident like that, a city bus accident in Northern Nevada. As of yet no injuries have been reported from this crash. As we’ve written about extensively, however, not all injuries appear immediately following the moment of the accident. Whiplash injuries and neck and back car accident injuries in Nevada are often seen to present somewhat afterwards, even days or weeks. But regardless, even if no injuries at all were sustained in this accident, the coincidence of all these commercial vehicle accidents in the news is glaring.

This accident in Reno was a Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) bus on Kietzke Lane. The accident occurred near the intersection of Mill Street, and snarled traffic there for quite some time. Given that the accident occurred a little before 3:30 in the afternoon on the Friday of Labor Day Weekend, we can imagine just how nasty this made the whole area surrounding the Mill Street onramp onto 395. Fortunately, and as we stated earlier, no injuries were yet released or reported. Though this news article on the bus accident in Washoe County mentions it being unclear if lanes were shut temporarily to deal with the accident, a Reno Police Department Lieutenant, one Amy Newman, is quoted in the article as being pretty sure there were closures. That would make sense, given the traffic jam the accident caused.
