Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Services crews transported one person to Desert View Hospital after responding to a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of Floyd Street and Basin Avenue just before 12 p.m. on Wednesday March 3rd.
Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Justin Branske, after speaking to Nye County Sheriff’s Office deputies, said the collision involved the driver and passenger of a small late model Chevy sedan, and a tractor trailer heading eastbound on Basin.
“It sounds like the traffic backup from the COVID-19 vaccines being administered today, was a factor in the accident,” he said. “At this point I’m not sure who was at fault, but eastbound traffic on Basin has been shut down until the scene has been thoroughly investigated and cleared. This is a good time to remind people to pay attention to other drivers when they are driving. Obviously you want to make sure you are wearing your seatbelt and obeying the speed limit as well as your surroundings.”
The Nye County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the exact cause of the crash.
The driver of the car who was transported to the hospital is expected to recover from his injuries.
