Ex-Nevada Court Justice Rose Hospitalized After Wreck

Posted: Updated:

Retired Nevada Supreme Court chief justice Bob Rose has been injured in a car accident near Fallon.

He was transported to Banner Churchill County Hospital in Fallon on Monday morning with non life-threatening injuries to his ribs and sternum. He currently remains under observation.

The 73-year-old Rose now serves as a senior judge. Supreme Court spokesman Bill Gang says the accident occurred while he was on his way from his Carson City home to preside over the Fallon/Yerington/Hawthorne drug court.

Nevada Highway Patrol trooper Barbara Stapleton says it was a "rollover accident" somewhere between Interstate 80 and U.S. Highway 50 but she doesn't have any more details.

Chief Justice Kristina Pickering, who described Justice Rose as "a friend and a truly decent human being," said she and the Supreme Court are "thankful the injuries are not life-threatening." 

"We in Justice Rose's judicial family wish him a speedy recovery," Chief Justice Pickering said.  "His dedication to the Judiciary for more than 25 years is unsurpassed." 

Rose retired in 2006. (AP)
