Two vehicle accident sends three to the hospital

A two-vehicle collision on Thursday, Feb. 24, sent three individuals to the hospital.

According to the California Highway Patrol, George Gulan, 74, of Reno, was driving his 2008 Ford Escape westbound on Red Rock Road just before 1 p.m., approaching the intersection with US-395, with Sandra Gulan, 77, in the right front passenger seat.  Wade Mitchell, 60, of Herlong, was driving his 2000 Subaru Outback northbound on US-395 and just south of Red Rock Road.

Gulan stopped for the stop sign and then entered the intersection to make a left-hand turn to go southbound onto US-395 as Mitchell’s Subaru was entering the intersection.  Mitchell took evasive action by turning to the left.  The front of the Subaru Outback collided with the front of the Ford Escape.  The Ford Escape was spun around and came to rest facing in an easterly direction and blocking the intersection near the area of impact.  The Subaru Outback was sent careening in a northwesterly direction across US-395 and onto the west shoulder where it collided with a large highway sign prior to coming to rest.

All three vehicle occupants were injured as a result of this collision and transported to Renown Medical Center.  It was determined that both occupants of the Ford had been wearing their seatbelts, while Mitchell, the sole occupant of the Subaru, had not been wearing his seatbelt.
