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.
