Sparks Intersection Reopened After Crash Involving REMSA Ambulance
NHP releases details of Friday's crash involving a truck and a REMSA ambulance near Greg Street near McCarran Blvd.
A portion of Greg Street near McCarran Blvd. is back open as authorities investigate a non-injury crash involving a REMSA ambulance.
The crash was first reported just after 6:30 a.m. on Friday.
NHP says a preliminary investigation shows that a REMSA Ambulance was traveling southbound on McCarran approaching Greg Street with emergency lights and siren activated. The ambulance slowed down as it approached the intersection and then began to travel across Greg Street, continuing southbound on McCarran Boulevard. A Chevrolet truck with a utility bed was traveling westbound on Greg Street and entered the intersection at the same time. NHP says the front of the ambulance struck the right rear of the Ford truck, causing the truck to overturn onto its roof.
REMSA tells us no one was hurt in the ambulance, while a pickup occupant was transported to a nearby hospital as a precaution.
NHP says the crash investigation is ongoing and the driver at fault has not been determined at this time.
