Two people were sent to the local hospital after a white Chevy pickup truck and dark tan four door sedan collided at the intersection of State Route 160 and Basin Avenue Wednesday afternoon.
The accident reportedly occurred just before 3 p.m. in the middle of the intersection.
It appeared the front of the sedan collided with the right passenger side of the truck in the middle of the light.
The two female drivers involved in the incident were removed from their vehicles by paramedics and transported to Desert View Hospital for further treatment.
Fire Chief Scott Lewis said he was returning to the fire station just before 3 p.m. when he came upon the accident around the same time bystanders were calling dispatch for help.
He said injuries didn’t appear too severe at the scene, but they did warrant two ambulances to be called to the area to take the women for further treatment at the hospital.
Two Nye County Sheriff’s deputies arrived on scene shortly after to help direct traffic around the accident as medics worked to pull both women from the vehicles.
Nevada Highway Patrol was also called to the scene for an investigation.
Lewis said a Pahrump Valley Fire Rescue Services fire engine was dispatched to the scene to help clean up a fluid spill coming from the smashed front end of the sedan.
Debris from both the truck and car could be seen littering the intersection from the damaged vehicles.
The sedan seemed to suffer more damages than the truck with a completely smashed front end. The truck suffered a large dent in its side where it collided with the sedan.
