Alcohol Suspected in Interstate Accident

Posted: Updated:

The Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating an accident that happened in the eastbound lanes of I-80, near the Rock Blvd. exit, just after 11:00 p.m. Wednesday night.

Troopers say a 23-year-old Sparks man was driving his Jeep Cherokee at a high rate of speed, before losing control of his vehicle. At this point, they believe alcohol was a factor.

Bystanders helped the man out of his car, he was later transported to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.
