SPANISH SPRINGS, NV (KOLO) - The Nevada Highway Patrol is looking for a truck and driver involved in a crash Thursday night that closed Pyramid Highway (Highway 445).

Late the night of July 4, 2019, according to NHP Trooper Hannah DeGoey, the southbound driver of a BMW sedan lost control in the Winnemucca Ranch area and was t-boned by a pickup driver, and hit again by a third driver.

The driver and passenger in the BMW sustained serious injuries, and the driver of the pickup broke a leg.

NHP is looking for the third driver, also in a pickup, who left the scene of the crash, headed south on 445. That pickup is a black Chevrolet with a Raiders sticker. Anyone with information is asked to call 775-687-9600.

The highway was shut down for about two hours until the wreck was cleared.
