Reno, NV—

On June 3rd, 2014 at about 6:15 p.m, Officers from the Reno Police Department responded to Keystone Avenue and Kimbal Drive on a report of a vehicle collision.  Upon arrival Officers determined a Red Suzuki Swift was traveling southbound on Keystone Avenue when the driver slowed down in order to make a left turn onto KimbalDrive. As the vehicle slowed it was rear ended by a Silver Jeep Cherokee.  This impact sent the Suzuki traveling into on-coming traffic at which time it was struck head on by a Gray Jaguar that was traveling northbound. The driver of the Suzuki was transported to Renown Medical Facility where she later died. The other two drivers sustained minor injuries. The name of the deceased is being withheld pending notification to her next of kin.  Alcohol and speed do not appear to be factors in this collision.
