One person was transported by air to UMC Trauma, while another was transported to Desert View Hospital following a two-vehicle collision at the intersection of Gamebird Road and Winchester Avenue just after 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 18.
The crash appeared to be an offset head-on between a blue late-model sedan and silver SUV, where both vehicle’s airbags were activated upon impact.
Nye County Sheriff’s Office deputies are investigating the exact cause of the crash, while an animal control officer was also dispatched to the scene to secure several small animals that were contained in carriers inside one of the vehicles.
Visibly distraught family members arrived on scene as medics were preparing to transport the patients.
The condition of the individuals who were transported is unknown at this time.
