Carson City, NV (January 25, 2022) – Two people were hurt in a car crash that took place at Spooner Junction, an intersection in Carson City.
According to Carson City officials, the accident happened at the intersection of South Carson Street and US-50 around 6:13 p.m. Two vehicles were traveling in the area when they allegedly entered the intersection at the same time, colliding forcefully with one another. The vehicles involved in the accident were extensively damaged as a result.
Numerous responders, including paramedics and fire crews, were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. One person, who has not yet been identified, was rushed to Renown Medical Center with traumatic injuries. The other person was taken to Carson Tahoe Hospital for treatment of unknown injuries.
Due to the severity of the accident, the roadway was blocked at the intersection for an extended period of time. This led to delays until police cleared the scene.
No further details have been released but the investigation continues. Police will update as more information becomes available.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
