Original Story:

On June 29, 2022, at 4:34 a.m. Washoe County Sheriff’s Office patrol Deputies responded to a single vehicle rollover on Thomas Creek Road between Fellowship Way and Rock Haven Drive.  When Deputies arrived on scene, three occupants of the vehicle were discovered.  All three occupants were transported to local hospitals.  Two of the subjects involved in the accident sustained moderate injuries.  One of the subjects is in critical condition.

The Washoe County Sheriff's Office Major Accident Investigation Team (MAIT) is on scene investigating the accident.  Thomas Creek Road between Fellowship Way and Rock Haven Drive is closed for an indefinite amount of time to complete the investigation.  Initial findings indicate that speed appears to be a contributing factor in this accident.
