1 killed in single-vehicle rollover Tuesday

One person was killed and another injured following a single-vehicle rollover accident at the intersection of Leslie Street and Silver Sage Drive Tuesday evening.

Pahrump Valley Fire Rescue Services and Nye County Sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the area just before 5:45 p.m. for a report of a single-vehicle accident with at least one person trapped in the car.

When emergency personnel arrived on scene, they reportedly discovered a silver Nissan Altima flipped over on its roof in a nearby residential driveway in the 2000 block of Silver Sage Drive with two injured occupants.

Fire Chief Scott Lewis said they discovered one of the injured patients was actually trapped underneath the vehicle as they approached. The woman reportedly became trapped there after she was ejected from the vehicle.

First responders were able to employ the use of a forklift at the scene to move the heavy vehicle off the trapped woman.

She was then transported to Desert View Hospital by PVFRS where she was subsequently pronounced deceased.

A second patient injured in the accident was reportedly transported by Mercy Air to the trauma center at University Medical Center in Las Vegas for further treatment of his injuries sustained in the crash.

His condition was unknown as of press time Thursday afternoon. Police have not released the name of the deceased.

JIM WANG: Let’s get vaccinated: Why vaccination will protect you and the community

From state-wide lockdowns to mandatory health and safety measures, the COVID-19 pandemic changed the way we work, live and play, and unfortunately, has resulted in severe illness and death for many. Since January of 2020, there have been about 32 million reported cases of COVID-19 and about 570,000 total deaths from the virus in the United States. Specific populations of people are at higher risk of getting severely ill or dying from the virus. Among these are adults 65 or older, people with underlying health conditions and people with disabilities. In addition, people in vulnerable populations and some racial and ethnic minority groups are disproportionately affected by COVID-19.
