Reno, NV (November 19, 2023) - A serious collision in the Reno area on Sunday morning, November 19, required support from local emergency crews. At around 9:04 a.m., the accident took place at the corner of E. Plumb Lane and Interstate 580 SB. At least one person was hurt in the collision, and the injured parties requiring additional treatment were later transferred to local hospitals.
The area was closed for several hours while paramedics were present. Tow trucks were required to clear the scene of any resulting debris so the roadway could be reopened to outside traffic. The severity and number of resulting injuries have not been determined at this time. An ongoing investigation into the cause of the collision is being managed by local law enforcement officials, and more information will be provided as it continues.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
