One person was sent to the hospital with minor injuries after a car and motorcycle collided at the intersection of Manse and Homestead roads late Monday afternoon.
Pahrump Valley Fire Rescue Services and several Nye County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene shortly before 5 p.m. after it was reported there was an accident between the two vehicles in the area with possible injuries.
Witnesses at the scene said the motorcyclist was transported from the site shortly after to the local hospital for minor injuries. It appeared he had suffered road rash from where he had been knocked off his bike by the impact of the collision.
They said his condition did not appear to be life threatening, and it was reported that he was faring much better Tuesday morning.
Nevada Highway Patrol was also called out to the scene, after other agencies had responded, to conduct an investigation of the accident, as the driver of the sedan was a relative of Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo.
The elderly woman appeared to be visibly shaken, but otherwise alright while she waited with family who came to the scene after the incident occurred.
NCSO deputies on scene continued to help direct traffic around the intersection and prepare the vehicles to be moved by a tow truck once the scene had been documented as part of the investigation.
Though both vehicles suffered damages in the collision, the motorcycle appeared to receive the majority of them as it lay twisted and bent on the ground.
The sedan had less damage, with only a dent across both doors on the driver’s side of the vehicle, and several pieces from the car lying in the roadway.
The intersection remained blocked off for more than an hour as police and emergency responders worked to get everyone the help they needed and clean up the intersection from the incident.
