Reno, NV (September 7, 2022) – One person was seriously injured in a car accident that took place on a highway in Reno on Tuesday morning, September 6.
According to Nevada State Patrol officials, the accident happened at 11:15 a.m. in the southbound lanes of I-580 around the area of Moana Lane. Three vehicles were traveling in the area when they became involved in a chain-reaction collision due to reasons that are not yet known. One of the vehicles involved in the accident sustained severe damage as a result of the accident.
Several local responders, including Reno paramedics and fire crews, were called to the scene to help those in need. One person had to be extricated from their vehicle by fire crews, as they were trapped behind the wheel. The party was rushed to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
Due to the severity of the accident, all southbound lanes of traffic were blocked for some time. Traffic was backed up all the way to Mill Street.
The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues.
Our thoughts are with the party who has been seriously injured as a result of this collision.
