Reno, NV (December 23, 2021) – At 6:17 p.m. on the evening of Thursday, December 23, a car accident happened on a highway in Reno.
According to Reno Police, the accident happened in the westbound lanes of I-80 around the area of Robb Drive. Several vehicles were traveling in the westbound lanes of traffic when one or more lost control, causing a chain-reaction collision. The vehicles involved in the accident were badly damaged as a result of the accident.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other local responders were immediately dispatched to the scene to help those in need. One or more victims were seriously injured as a result of the collision. The injured parties were taken to local hospitals for treatment, though their conditions are not yet known.
Due to the severity of the collision, a large portion of the roadway was blocked for some time. This led to extensive delays until police cleared the scene.
The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
