Elderly male driver likely suffered a heart attack while driving north on So. Edmonds.
An elderly man driving southbound on South Edmonds Friday afternoon is believed to have suffered a heart attack causing him to lose control of his car. The car drifted to the right – left the pavement – and smashed in to a concrete driveway culvert. The impact was very violent and demolished half the car. Witnesses told a sheriff’s deputy that the man was trapped in the wreckage and was not breathing.
Arriving Carson City Fire-Paramedics worked hard to get him out of the wreckage…but it took a while due to the caved-in interior of the two front seats.
Paramedics quickly got to the man who was reported to be not breathing.
Paramedics loaded the victim inside an ambulance which did not leave the scene right away. The deceased driver’s name was not immediately released as per protocol – that his family should be informed first.
Paramedics and Firefighters finally extricate the victim.

Update on N. Edmonds SWAT action last Saturday:
The Carson City Sheriff’s Office has released the name of the man who was shot dead by SWAT team members in Carson City Saturday
A sheriff’s office release says the deceased male was identified as 32-year-old Cortney Ronald Staley. They said he was the biological father of the infant involved.
The CCSO said he died during an exchange of gunfire with a SWAT team just before 9pm following a long stand-off with Carson City Sheriff’s sharp-shooters. On more than one occasion Staley came out with his infant son pressed against his chest, screaming profanities at deputies. On one occasion Staley came out to yell at the deputies some more, while holding a pistol to his own head. After night-fall, the CCSO SWAT Team forced their way into the apartment, overwhelmed Staley with gunfire. Moments later Staley was dead. The infant was not injured.
A mother and father and their three young children went through Domestic Violence hell Saturday afternoon in Carson City as a fight between mom and dad turned deadly.
Scene of a tragic end to a marriage and one life…on No Edmonds
The estranged father was authorized by a judge to visit their children at their apartment on North Edmonds but a battle of words broke out causing the mother to scoop up two of the couples’ youngsters and all three fled the apartment, leaving the father holding the third child, an infant, in his arms. His estranged wife contacted the Sheriff’s Office and deputies began arriving on scene very quickly.
SWAT deputies took their positions in preparation of what looked like a long stand-off.
They surrounded the apartment at 1402 No. Edmonds where the father was hold-up with his infant son inside the apartment.
Holding his infant son, and a gun to his own head, the father demanded that law enforcement leave….
Deputies called the father out to talk to him. But the father spewed long tirades of profanities and when he came out holding his son in one arm he held a pistol against his own head yelling at deputies to leave.
Gun blast took out the west side window…
The father and infant went back inside. Soon there was a gun blast from inside the apartment. Then another and another and then more. Finally the west side window of the apartment was blown out by a gun blast.
SWAT team rushes the apartment. Lots of gunfire leaving the father dead. His son who survived is scooped up and taken to the hospital to be evaluated.
Right around sundown, the Carson City SWAT team rushed up the stairs and threw a “flash-bang” device into the apartment which went off like a bomb. Quickly the SWAT team went inside to bring the stand-off to a close – and that’s what happened. The father was killed but the infant was still okay. The infant was likely rushed to Carson Tahoe Hospital to be checked and evaluated.
No names have yet been released in connection with the incident.
