Accidents back up traffic on I-80 in Reno

RENO, Nev (AP) – Two separate accidents, including a fatality, have backed up eastbound traffic on Interstate 80 in west Reno.

Nevada Highway Patrol Sgt. Tom Lawson says traffic began to back up after a rollover at 8:40 this morning near Keystone Avenue that left a person with non life-threatening injuries.

He says a minivan later slammed into the rear of a tanker truck that had stopped for the earlier accident, killing the minivan driver.

The victim’s name wasn’t immediately released.

Lawson says eastbound traffic is being diverted around the accident scenes.

The accidents are under investigation by the NHP.
