Multiple Vehicle Accident in Washoe County, 1 Dead

A large investigation is underway as the Nevada Highway Patrol looks into a huge multi-vehicle car accident in Washoe County east of Sparks. A little before 8 in the morning on Friday Chevy S10 is said to have struck two cars and a semi for an as-yet unknown reason. The blue Chevy ended up on its wheels after that, but not before rolling multiple times and across into the oncoming lanes. Injuries were suffered by only two people in the vehicles that were struck, and only minor ones. The driver of the semi-truck wasn’t immediately hurt, though the driver of the S-10 passed away at the scene before he could be brought anywhere for treatment.
