One young woman was transported to Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center Wednesday evening after her black sedan narrowly missed an elderly man in a wheel-chair in a crosswalk. He was crossing Airport Road at Nye Lane. An SUV entered the intersection from Nye and collided with the sedan. The elderly man in the crosswalk narrowly made it to the other side of the road.
According to witnesses in the SUV they said they were stopped on Nye Lane waiting to turn left onto Airport Road. They saw the elderly man in the wheelchair venture out onto the crosswalk. The driver of the SUV turned south, away from the crosswalk, and onto Airport. Suddenly the black sedan, which they said was speeding, roared up, dodged the man in the wheelchair and hit the SUV. Driver of the sedan was injured and transported to CTRMC. Fortunately no one else was injured.
