Fallon, NV (February 18, 2022) – At 5:43 p.m. on the evening of Friday, February 18, a car crash took place at a Fallon intersection that led to injuries.
According to Fallon officials, the accident happened at the intersection of McLean Road and Sheckler Road. Several vehicles were traveling in the area when they entered the intersection at the same time, which caused the vehicles to forcefully collide with one another. The vehicles involved in the accident were badly damaged as a result of the accident.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were called to the scene to help those in need. One or more victims sustained injuries as a result of the accident. The injured parties, who have not yet been identified, were taken to local hospitals for treatment of unknown injuries.
The roadway was blocked in the area of the intersection for a period of time. This led to delays until police worked to clear the scene.
No further details have been released but the investigation into the accident continues.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
