RENO, Nev. (AP) - Retired Nevada Supreme Court chief justice Bob Rose is recovering at a Fallon hospital from injuries he suffered in a car accident.
State Supreme Court spokesman Bill Gang says the 73-year-old Rose injured his ribs and sternum in Monday morning's crash but the injuries are not considered life-threatening
District Judge Thomas Stockard says he visited Rose at Banner-Churchill Community Hospital, where he found him to be in pain, but lucid and already concerned about who would preside over drug court hearings for Fallon, Hawthorne and Yerington.
Now a senior judge, the 25-year veteran of the judiciary was headed there from his home in Carson City when the Nevada Highway Patrol says he was involved in a rollover accident somewhere between Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway 50.
No other details have been released.
