RENO, NV - Nevada Highway Patrol troopers had a busy Tuesday morning when a dusting of snow fell in the area.

The stretch of roadway with the most calls for service was on US 395 between North McCarran and Cold Springs. Between 6:00 am and 9:00 am, this 10-mile stretch of highway generated nine calls involving accidents and over a dozen spin-outs or slide-offs. 8 of the accidents were non-injury crashes with mostly single-vehicle collisions where motorists lost control of their vehicles and struck adjacent guardrails or roadway barriers. One of the accidents included a three-vehicle collision on US 395 just after 6:00 am near the Panther Valley interchange.

Only one accident had reported injuries, and they are minor. The vehicle in question, a silver SUV, rolled over and came to rest on its top near the southbound Red Rock interchange. A child riding in the vehicle was not transported, but he was treated at the scene.
