An awful crash yesterday on Nevada’s Kingsbury Grade caused the death of at least one person. Many other people were injured in this terrible wreck. The person killed was a woman. Her name is not being released, per usual protocol, until her family is notified. She did not die on scene of the accident, but rather succumbed to her injuries after being flown via helicopter to a hospital in Reno. One of the other people injured in the accident was also in bad enough condition to be taken to the hospital on that same Care Flight to Reno. There is some confusion from this news report on the Nevada vehicle fatality on Kingsbury Grade as to how many persons were transported on the air ambulance, whether it was one or two additional persons from the vehicles involved in the collision. There were at least two more injured persons taken to the hospital in regular ambulance transport. If you’re injured or a loved one is killed in a Nevada vehicle accident, Benson & Bingham can help.

This Nevada vehicle death appears to have been caused by a head on collision. The two vehicles in the collision are reported to be a Nissan Pathfinder and motorhome. The driver of the Pathfinder is said to be the young woman who died from her injuries. It was said to have happened a little before 1:30 in the afternoon yesterday. The location is reported to have been just a little ways down the hill toward the valley from Tramway. People had to be extricated from both vehicles. The Nissan was also reported to have caught fire. The road was completely closed for what appears to have been a few hours while police worked to investigate and clear the scene. Nevada Highway Patrol reportedly indicated that the motorhome was a rented vehicle. Many questions have yet to be answered, such as which side of the road the accident occurred on and therefore which driver is likely to have been at fault in the accident.
