A Carson City man was taken into custody on Monday morning in connection with a five-vehicle collision at Highway 395 and Mica Drive that resulted in one of the vehicles catching fire.

David Black, 34, was identified as the driver of a 2014 Toyota RAV4. Black was reportedly southbound on Highway 395 heading toward the Mica traffic signal where three other vehicles, a Chrysler Sebring, a pickup and a Ford Fusion were stopped in the fast lane at the light.

Black failed to stop and struck the rear of the Chrysler, which ran into the pickup, which ran into the Ford.

The RAV4 then rotated and hit a Toyota Yaris that was waiting at the light in the slow lane.

One of the vehicles caught fire and forced the closure of the roadway while firefighters extinguished the blaze. Southbound traffic was rerouted onto Jacks Valley Road. Black was booked into Douglas County Jail.

All injuries from the Indian Hills collision were reported to be minor by the NHP.
