Police: Red Light Runner Causes Rollover in Downtown Reno

Posted: Updated:

Two drivers are recovering from injuries after an accident in downtown Reno on Monday morning.

The crash happened just before noon on Maple Street where it crosses Center right next to the I-80 eastbound on-ramp.

Police say the driver of a Dodge Durango was heading north on Center, and according to witnesses, ran a red light and t-boned a Ford Expedition.

Firefighters had to cut the top off of the Expedition in order to get the driver out.

The drivers of both vehicles were taken to Renown Regional Medical Center with non-life threatning injuries. However, a dog in the Expedition was killed.

Police say this is a good reminder for drivers to be careful and pay attention.
