Reno, NV (January 11, 2022) – Around 10:15 p.m. on Monday night, January 10, a rollover crash occurred at an intersection in Reno.
Reno Police confirmed that the accident happened at the intersection of South Meadows Parkway and Wilbur May Parkway. The driver of an SUV was traveling east when the driver lost control of the vehicle, causing it to strike the median. This caused the vehicle to overturn, causing it to sustain severe damages.
Paramedics, fire crews, and numerous other responders were called to the scene to help those with injuries. Two people were trapped inside the rolled vehicle and had to be extricated by fire crews. The occupants were rushed to the hospital. Though one had less severe injuries, the other sustained life-threatening injuries.
Due to the severity of the accident, South Meadows was blocked in both directions for several hours. Police were able to get the scene cleared by 6 a.m.
No further details have been released. The investigation into the circumstances of the collision continues.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families in hopes of a full recovery.
