CRYSTAL BAY, Nev. (KOLO) -Two people were injured and taken to the hospital after a north Lake Tahoe crash Sunday morning that temporarily closed Nevada 28 near the border with California.

Neither person’s injuries were life-threatening, the Nevada Highway Patrol reported.

Around 9:30 a.m. a westbound brown Chevrolet pickup crossed over the centerline of Nevada 28 and struck a white Toyota Forerunner head-on, the NHP said. Both vehicles ended up in the eastbound lane.

The NHP is investigating impairment as a possible cause of the crash.

Nevada 28 reopened to alternating traffic before becoming completely open around noon, the NHP said.
