Crash shuts down the main thoroughfare

One person was transported to Desert View Hospital on Tuesday, Sept. 14, following a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Pahrump Valley Boulevard and Bourbon Street.

Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Services crews and Nye County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the scene just after 2 p.m., where a red Dodge pickup truck collided with a small white vehicle.

The collision forced the closure of Pahrump Valley Boulevard between Bourbon and Arrowhead streets as crews worked to clear the scene, while a Nye County Animal Control officer responded to secure a dog that was inside the white vehicle.

The animal was not injured.

After the driver of that vehicle was medically assessed by paramedics, she was subsequently taken to the hospital.

Though the extent of her injuries was not disclosed, she is expected to make a full recovery.

The sheriff’s office is investigating the exact cause of the crash, which caused significant damage to both vehicles.
