9:24pm Report of a car plunging into the the Carson River near Lloyds Bridge, landing upside down in the river. Both occupants are out of the car, but there are injuries. Care Flight was put on stand-by.
10:00 pm Injuries to both man and woman occupants were judged to be enough to get them checked out at Carson-Tahoe RMC.
It appeared that the car had turned off of Pinion Hills Road and south onto Sierra Vista Lane that follows the river toward the south. Reports at the scene indicate the car was going too fast to navigate a sharp curve to the left causing the car to lose control and roll down a very steep bank, landing upside down out in the river just downstream from Lloyds Bridge. Both the man and woman managed to crawl out of the vehicle. Both were checked out inside a Carson City Fire-Rescue Ambulance for a quick trip to the hospital.
Two very lucky young people. Their names were not immediately released.
