Name of man in Saturday wreck released
A Carson City man remained the hospital on Monday after he allegedly caused a three-vehicle accident Saturday morning at Fairview Drive and Highway 50 East.
Miguel Angel Aban Terredes, 26, was in the intensive-care unit at Renown Regional Medical Center on Monday with “nonlife-threatening injuries,” said Nevada Highway Patrol Sgt. Mark Clark.
Police believe Terredes was intoxicated when he rear-ended the truck of Rudolfo Gaona, 70, of Carson City, as it sat in the northbound left-turn lane on Fairview Drive.
Terredes allegedly then backed up and ran the red light into the path of a westbound Ford sedan driven by John Bolzer, 49, of Silver Springs.
Terredes was cut from the vehicle by paramedics and taken by helicopter to the Reno hospital.
Bolzer sustained cuts and bruises and was taken by ambulance to Carson Tahoe Regional Medical Center, where he was treated and released.
Gaona was unhurt.
Neither of the vehicles had human passengers, although the driver of the Ford sedan was accompanied by three dogs.
The Carson City Sheriff’s Department turned the accident investigation over to the Nevada Highway Patrol at the scene.
Deputy Doug Speegle could not report on whether Terredes was intoxicated, as many eyewitnesses had suggested.
Clark said charges against Terredes are pending.
