Reno, NV (August 20, 2021) – A Regional Transportation Commission bus was one of four vehicles involved in a crash that occurred on Thursday evening, August 19, resulting in multiple injuries. 

Officers with the Reno Police Department and Nevada Highway Patrol troopers say the incident happened on the ramp from northbound Interstate 580 to eastbound Interstate 80 around 7:30 p.m.

Several people were reportedly injured, but only one was transported to a hospital for further treatment. The extent of the injuries was not known, however.

The incident remains under investigation, and further information has not been provided at this time.

Car Accident Injuries in Reno

It is nearly impossible to prepare for the aftermath of a motor vehicle accident. Even crashes that take place at low speeds can result in severe and catastrophic injuries that dramatically change the lives of victims and put them in a financial bind. 

Regrettably no matter how careful and considerate you are while operating your vehicle along Nevada roadways, there is no way to prevent careless and negligent drivers from causing you harm. In fact, over 80% of motor vehicle crashes in our state are caused by driver error. 

We see a significant number of people injured in crashes due to drivers who are distracted, impaired drivers, speeding, and drivers who engage in reckless driving behaviors while operating their vehicles. 

When people are hurt in accidents due to these and other acts of negligence, it is imperative that they seek the guidance of a competent and trusted car accident attorney in Reno as soon as possible.
