Multi-Car Crashes Slow Traffic on 395

By  | 

RENO, NV - No one is seriously hurt after accidents that caused a slowdown on 395 southbound between North McCarran and Parr Boulevards Wednesday morning. (For a time, it was believed this was all on I-580, which doesn't technically take over for 395 until the road crosses I-80.)

The Nevada Highway Patrol tells KOLO 8 News Now it started as a five-car crash near the Oddie Boulevard offramp about 6:45AM, with nine more drivers colliding along the same stretch while not slowing down or trying to swerve to miss the first crash.

No one has been cited. Troopers remind drivers to maintain a safe following distance with other vehicles and pay attention to driving at all times.
