One person has died following a two-vehicle collision along the 1000 block of Charleston Park Avenue on Tuesday, July 20.
Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Services Chief Scott Lewis said crews were dispatched to the scene just after 11:30 a.m., where initial reports indicated the vehicles collided head-on.
“Crews arrived to confirm the accident as described,” Lewis said. “A quick scene size-up revealed no additional scene hazards, except for a large debris field. Unfortunately, we had two drivers that were both mechanically entrapped. They also displayed critical injuries, and based on those reports and first-hand information, we added two Mercy airships to the assignment, utilizing Base-21 as the landing zone.”
Lewis went on to say that once both of the patients were quickly extricated, two medical units transported the pair to the Mercy Air Base where patient care was transferred.
The medical condition of the second driver is unknown.
The Nye County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the exact cause of the collision.
