Sheriff's cruiser involved in apparent head-on collision in north Reno
RENO, Nev. (News 4 & Fox 11) —
A Washoe County sheriff's vehicle was involved in a head-on collision with a car in north Reno Tuesday night.
The two vehicles were sitting on N. Virginia Street near Panther Drive and showed front-end damage when a News 4-Fox 11 crew arrived on scene.
A member of the Reno Police Department said the dark-colored sedan was heading the wrong way leading up to the crash, and that alcohol might be a factor. No serious injuries were reported.
It's not yet clear who the lead investigating agency will be due to the involvement of a law enforcement vehicle.
The northbound side of Virginia remains open, with one lane of the southbound side open until the vehicles can be towed.
