Sunday drivers, as the myth goes, are those that take a leisurely drive at slow speeds and generally avoid risks and danger. Tragically, that is not what resulted this past Sunday when a Reno auto accident left one person dead and three more injured. The crash occurred at 4:15 p.m. and the woman who was killed was a resident of Minnesota. The crash occurred on South Virginia Street just in front of Tamarack Casino.
According to reports, a 1932 Ford Roadster was traveling down South Virginia Street near the casino when the other vehicle, turned in front of it. Even though the driver of the Roadster had time to put pressure on the brakes, it was apparently not enough time to avoid a violent collision. One of the passengers in the Roadster was killed and three other people were injured and transported to Renown Regional Medical Center with injuries of varying degrees of severity.
Sadly, this tragedy is far from uncommon in Nevada. Every year, more than 350 people are killed in Nevada auto accidents, which equates to more than 7 fatalities every week or one every single day. This statistical trend has remained constant for several years despite numerous efforts to promote safety to those who get behind the wheel.
