Rollover Accident In Dayton

Posted: Updated:

Authorities are investigating after a vehicle rollover accident in Dayton Friday.

The Lyon County Sheriff's Office says it happened on Dayton Valley Road near Rancho Road around 3:30 p.m. When deputies got on scene, they found a Toyota SUV with three teenagers inside that had veered off the road and rolled.

Deputies say the driver was 16-years old, while the passengers were both 15. One of the passengers was ejected and was taken by helicopter to Renown Regional Medical Center and was treated for head and neck injuries. The other two were taken by a ground ambulance to Renown for head and neck injuries as well. Authorities believe all three have non-life threatening injuries.

The Nevada Highway Patrol was later called in to help with the investigation. Troopers say drugs and alcohol do not appear to be involved at this time, but say speed appears to be a factor in the accident.
