Sparks Exit from 580 Back Open After Crash

By  | 

RENO, NV - NDOT and the Nevada Highway Patrol have reopened the EB exit to I-80 in Sparks from northbound I-580.

The crash happened around 8:30AM Thursday. NHP says the driver of a pickup may have been drinking, and hit a median while headed northbound on 580. The pickup ended up backward, straddling a median. That person and a passenger were taken to a hospital for treatment of what the NHP says are non-life-threatening injuries.

One estimate indicated the ramp may not be back open until 1PM, but NDOT was able to clear the road and made fixes to the median sooner.
