A lady driver headed home Saturday night for the evening was exiting northbound I-580 at Fairview when things went terribly wrong. That exit tends to be rather curvy so exit speeds need to be a lot slower than you’d expect. Unfortunately the lady lost control of her SUV on the second curve of the ramp. She rolled her vehicle – coming to rest on it’s right side facing the opposite direction. She was extricated from her vehicle with help from first responders. She didn’t seem to be injured.
Just about a month ago a man and woman were injured when their sports car failed to negotiate the first exit curve – close to the freeway. The car flipped. Both were injured. One of them was Care Flighted to the trauma center at Renown in Reno.
Again, the northbound I-580 exit at Fairview is a little tricky. It’s common for drivers to hit those exit curves a little too fast. The instant you take the exit ramp slow it way down, so you don’t wind up “upside down.”
