FALLON, NV (KOLO)-- The driver of a Chevrolet Tahoe went the wrong way on U.S. 95 about 33 miles north of Fallon Saturday and collided with a tractor-trailer rig, the Nevada Highway Patrol reported.

U.S. 95 was closed for several hours, the NHP said. The accident happened around 4:25 p.m. as the driver went south in the northbound lane. That highway connects Fallon with Interstate 80.

A medical helicopter took the Tahoe driver to a hospital. The tractor-trailer rig was blocking the entire highway.
