We mentioned earlier in a story about a high speed head on crash on Highway 50 near Arrowhead Monday afternoon. Major injuries there. But Monday evening proved to be very accident prone as well. Sheriff’s Deputies say that a nasty crash occurred at Saliman and Fairview. Deputies say a woman driving west on Fairview thought an oncoming pickup was signaling to turn north on Saliman – so she turned south onto Saliman. But the pick up apparently straightened out as if he had changed his mind and headed straight ahead. The impact was horrendous. Both the pick and the small sedan were extensively damaged. The lady was loaded aboard an ambulance for transport to CTRMC. Driver of the pickup was questioned about what happened. Investigators had also questioned the lady driver as to what happened. She said pickup appeared to be turning away from her, then went straight. They both ended in the southwest corner of Saliman and Fairview.
The impact very substantial….
We’ll see how it settles out.
Driver of Waste Mgmt truck saved the vehicle by dumping a load that was on fire…
A little earlier in the evening a Waste Management truck driver had just finished picking up the contents of apartment trash bins on Little Lane . But suddenly he smelled smoke and heard what he described as large car or truck batteries popping from the rear of his truck. He stopped and realized his truck was in grave danger of catching fire so he quickly dumped his collected garbage onto the ground in a field off Little Lane. Fire fighters arrived and drowned the fire in what was by then a small mountain of trash and garbage on the ground.
That’s a lotta trash the fireman is hosing down….there on Little Lane.
The driver said he made a mess but he saved a refuse truck which are not cheap. Firefighters and Waste Management personnel were working together to keep the fire out and enroute to a secure dump site. No injuries.
The South Carson Complete Streets Project design is complete! Carson City Public Works and the project contractor Sierra Nevada Construction, will be hosting a pre-construction meeting to present the anticipated construction schedule and the completed project design. The meeting will be held on Thursday, January 30, 2020, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Carson City Community Center, in the Sierra Room, located at 851 E. William Street.
The Nevada Department of Transportation recently transferred the commercial corridor to the City, giving us the opportunity to transform the corridor and to provide safer movements for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists; improve access to abutting businesses and prepare Carson City for Smart City advancements.
The approximate project limits are from the intersection of South Carson Street and 5th Street, south to the intersection of South Carson Street and Appion Way. The project includes pedestrian safety measures, ADA-compliant sidewalks and curb ramps, narrowed travel lanes, and a buffered multi-use path. It also includes dedicated bicycle facilities, a roundabout, critical improvements to stormwater infrastructure, improved business access, street lighting, enhanced signals, upgrades to the water and sewer systems. There are also fiber optic communications improvements that will complete the City’s core communications ring. Construction is anticipated to start late February of this year.
The meeting will include a presentation on the South Carson Street design, project schedule, and discuss various communication tools for the public to stay connected during the construction process. It is the goal of the Project team to keep citizens informed, engaged and involved throughout the construction process.

Car suspected of traveling eastbound in westbound lane.
Black car headed east in westbound lane on 50 say witnesses.
Victim driver headed west transported to Renown in Reno via CareFlight. Two others went by ground ambulance to CTH.
With the velocities of all four cars, it’s amazing no one was killed.
Two accident victims were reportedly injured seriously when their two cars collided head on at Highway 50 just east of E. Arrowhead. The black vehicle had turned left off of Arrowhead and proceeded eastbound on 50…but she was using the westbound fast lane, going the wrong way. An on-coming sedan hit the black card hard which spun both vehicles around. Meanwhile, two other cars also headed west couldn’t avoid the accident and their vehicles suffered only minor damage careening off the original accident vehicles. More information to follow when NHP finishes its report.
