Woman flown to UMC trauma after crash

A Pahrump woman was flown to UMC Trauma in Las Vegas following a single-vehicle crash at the intersection of Blagg and Harris Farm roads late Tuesday morning, Sept. 5.

Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Services Chief Scott Lewis said crews arrived on scene just before 9:15 a.m.

“This was a motor-vehicle crash and rescue assignment where the vehicle ran into a fixed object, being a tree,” Lewis said.

“Crews arrived and found the patient medically entrapped inside the vehicle. The injuries sustained warranted flight from Mercy Air 21, which was brought to the scene, where a landing zone was established on North Blagg Road.

“Patient care was transferred to Mercy Air 21, and that patient was flown to UMC Trauma,” Lewis said.
