Police: Alcohol a factor in deadly Reno crash

By  | 

RENO (AP) - Police say alcohol appears to be a factor in a
deadly Reno traffic accident.

Investigators say a male died after a vehicle left the roadway
and slammed into a wall early this morning at Robb Drive and Big
Springs.

The male, whose name and age were withheld pending notification
of family members, was pronounced dead shortly after arrival at a
Reno hospital.

Another occupant of the car was found walking near the vehicle
and was released after being treated at the scene.

The 3 a-m accident is under investigation.
