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.
