Major Injury Accident at Plumb Lane and Plumas Street

Post Date:04/22/2014 3:55 PM

 Witnesses reported the female was driving at a high rate of speed and weaving around other vehicles.  The female ran the red light at the intersection of Plumb Lane and Plumas Street and was struck by a 2003 PT Cruiser.  As a result of the collision the Jeep lost its right rear tire and rolled several times.  While it was rolling the Jeep struck a parked 1994 Ford Ranger and sent it into the front yard of a residence on Plumb Lane.

The female driver of the Jeep received a serious injury to her right hand so the Reno Police Department’s Major Accident Investigation Team was called to the scene and took over the investigation.  The driver of the PT Cruiser did not receive any injuries.  This accident is still under investigation and at this time we are unsure if the female was experiencing a medical event prior to the incident.

Anyone having information relating to this accident should contact the Reno Police Department Major Accident Investigation Team at 775-745-0069, Secret Witness at 322-4900,, or text the tip to 847411 (TIP 411) keyword - SW
