Reno, NV (June 14, 2021) – Around 1 a.m. on Monday morning, June 14, a hit-and-run crash occurred at an intersection in Reno.
According to Reno Police, the accident happened at the intersection of Kietzke Lane and Vassar Street. A white pickup truck, which was stolen earlier in the day, was headed eastbound when it ran a red light at the intersection. The truck T-boned an SUV as it drove through the intersection. The SUV was struck so forcefully that it went into a parking lot nearby.
Paramedics and numerous other local responders were called to the scene. Two people inside the SUV, who have not yet been identified, were extricated by fire crews. The parties were then rushed to the hospital with serious injuries.
The driver of the stolen truck did not stay at the scene and is still on the run from the police.
Due to the severity of the crash, a large portion of the roadway was blocked at the intersection for some time.
No further details have been released but the investigation remains ongoing.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
Car Accidents in Nevada
Intersections are dangerous places on Nevada roads where some of the most severe accidents occur every single year. Nevada is no stranger to these accidents, which occur in the blink of an eye due to the reckless acts of others. In just one year’s time in the U.S., approximately 2.5 million intersection accidents took place due to negligent reasons. These accidents occur due to many different reasons including driver distractions, drunk driving, speeding, drowsy driving, and more. If you have been hurt in a serious car accident, you have options and should always be prepared to speak with an attorney that you can trust.
Being injured in a Nevada car accident can impact your life on physical, emotional, and financial levels. Nobody is ever fully prepared to face the aftermath of a car accident on their own but this is the reality that many victims face each year. Some of the most severe injuries that result from these collisions include traumatic brain injuries, organ damage, fractures, spinal cord trauma, and more.
