Traffic was restricted on Pyramid highway between Queen Way and Disc Drive Saturday night, as Nevada Highway Patrol Troopers investigated an accident involving 5 vehicles. It all started when a yellow Volkswagen Bug slammed into a BMW while headed southbound on Pyramid. Troopers say the BMW spun around hitting a pickup truck.
At that point the driver of the Bug attempted to leave the scene, heading north on Pyramid. About two miles from the original accident, the VW hit a Jeep which was stopped at Disc Drive. The Jeep pushed forward hitting another vehicle that was parked.
Emergency crews arrived on scene a short time later. The driver, was extricated from the VW and taken to the hospital. Alcohol is suspected to be a factor. The other drivers involved received minor injuries. The accident is still under investigation.
