Trees Prevent SUV from Rolling into Lake Tahoe After Accident

By  | 

RENO, Nev. -- There was a close call off of Highway 28 near Sand Harbor as a car went off the road and rolled Saturday afternoon.

Our KOLO 8 News Now crew at the scene says if the trees hadn't stopped it, the car may have rolled into Lake Tahoe. Police scanner reports indicated several people had stopped to help.

The woman inside got out on her own, but emergency crews were on hand. She went to the hospital as a precaution.

There will be one-way traffic controls at the accident site until a tow truck can pull up the SUV.
