RENO — At about 5:30 p.m. on Monday, the Reno Police Department responded to report of a pedestrian who had been struck by a vehicle in the area of Mae Anne Avenue and McCarran Boulevard in Reno. The pedestrian tried to run from the east side of McCarran to the west, about 130 feet from the crosswalk, in a dimly lit area. The force of the impact actually knocked the windshield into the driver of the car, causing minor facial injuries to the driver.

The pedestrian, a 25-year-old resident of Kings Beach, Calif., was taken to Renown Regional Medical Center with head trauma, which appears to be non-life-threatening at this time. The pedestrian also suffered a fractured leg and several other injuries as well and is listed in serious condition.

Although the accident is still being investigated, it appears as though no criminal charges will be filed against the driver. The Reno Police Department always encourages pedestrians to cross streets lawfully and safely. It is even more important during the holiday season to do, with increased shopper traffic and often difficult driving conditions.
