Incline Village Woman Dies After Crash on South Virginia Street

Posted: Updated:

Nevada Highway Patrol says an Incline Village woman died in a crash on South Virginia Street in front of the Tamarack Junction last Saturday. 

NHP says a preliminary investigation shows that a 2011 Jeep Liberty made a left turn onto South Virginia Street from the Tamarack Junction main entrance around 5 p.m. that day.

The driver pulled out in front of a Mercedes Benz E-Class that was traveling south in the left lane of South Virginia Street. The Mercedes driver, 76-year-old Karin Schulze Brown tried to stop to avoid the Jeep, but was unsuccessful and struck the left front of the Jeep.   

Brown was transported to a Reno hospital where she later died of her injuries 

NHP says impairment is not suspected to be a contributing factor in this crash.
