3 Hurt in Auto Accident in Northern Nevada

It’s vacation season, with so many out of school or just enjoying the summer and all the Reno-Tahoe area has to offer. The bad news is that this often means more road congestion just by sheer volume of visitors to our area. Mix that in with the summer road construction traffic, and you have a recipe stop and go traffic, frustrated drivers, and bad car accidents. We saw a nasty car accident recently, one of the types that can be the most fatal or injurious: a head on collision. This car accident in Northern Nevada injured three people early Wednesday morning, about 7am, though fortunately none were killed as of this writing.

This accident, the head on collision, took place on Highway 50 in Douglas County, just a little west of Zephyr Cove – a popular and busy beach, as you likely already know. According to state troopers, this injury vehicle accident occurred when a man who was driving a Cadillac sedan crossed over into oncoming traffic, for reasons that were not yet clear. He was travelling east, and struck head on into a Subaru Forester. Two children, passengers in the Subaru, were injured in minor ways and brought to the nearby hospital, Barton Memorial. The man who was driving the Cadillac which allegedly caused the accident was injured in a more serious way, and had to be air lifted to a hospital in Reno, Renown Regional Center, to be treated for his more extensive injuries following this head on car accident in the Reno area.

14 Vehicles Involved in Injury Accident in Reno

When you hear there was a 14 car accident on the freeway, you normally would think and imagine the worst – traffic stopped for hours on end, tons of property damage, and worse, like horrible injuries, and fatalities. Thankfully, almost none of that was the case recently with a car accident in Reno that involved 14 different vehicles. If you’re injured in a car accident in Reno, or anywhere in Northern Nevada, contact Benson & Bingham Attorneys at Law for a free consultation to talk over your legal options and ability to be compensated for your injuries.

This accident was reported to have started with 5 vehicles being involved in an accident in the far left hand lane of traffic headed south on U.S. 395. This was in the area just north of the Spaghetti Bowl, between the North McCarran Boulevard and Oddie Boulevard exits of the freeway. Following this 5 car pile up, 9 more vehicles ended up in some sort of accident either by swerving to avoid other vehicles or failing to slow down and causing rear-end auto accidents in this Reno freeway demolition derby. Fortunately, only one driver was said to suffer any injury in this Washoe County car accident, and it was not even serious enough for him to be taken to the hospital.

That doesn’t mean, however, that no one else will feel the aftereffects of this major car accident. Often times, neck and back injuries from these types of accidents, like this major, multiple vehicle automobile accident in Las Vegas, don’t show up for days or weeks. Be sure that you don’t sign off on not having any injuries in regards to insurance claims for at least a few days or ideally a few weeks after a vehicle accident in Reno, particularly rear-end accidents that may involve whiplash. Get checked out by a doctor if there’s any indication of injury; this is most likely covered by another party’s insurance if you were not at fault in the accident.

If there is any injury or potential injury, make sure you get legal representation.
