Two drivers headed west on Highway 50 collide in front of Goodwill Store

3:40pm  Details are a bit sketchy but it appears two cars came together on westbound Highway 50 almost front of the Goodwill Store.  Details are sketchy but one driver told NewsCarsonCounty.com that the other driver had been agitating him in front.  Suddenly the two vehicles came together.  It appeared the vehicle in front braked firmly – causing a collision and a roll-over.  One driver was not seriously hurt.  But the driver of the one just ahead was badly injured and was transported to either a local hospital or to Renown in Reno depending of the seriousness of the wounds.

No names yet released.  A report from local law enforcing is pending.

Carson City Family Donates High Powered and Quick Tools for the Job

Deputy Jeff Pullen and partner K-9 “Blue”

The Berger Family Trust Donates State-of-the-Art Pursuit Edition Vehicle to CCSO K9, to Elevate K9 and Officer Safety While Enhancing Patrol K9 Response.

This new vehicle will be assigned to senior handler and K9 trainer, Deputy Jeff Pullen, along with his K9 partner Blue. Along with standard police fitment, this vehicle possesses additionally advanced equipment. To start, it has a standardized interior K9 insert, designed to protect K9 Blue against collisions and other impacts, while keeping him comfortable. It also has a contemporary heat alarm system which ensures Blue is safe from heat exhaustion and fire, as the system will automatically cool the car or even open the doors for Blue to escape.

Beyond those now standard features, the vehicle has an upgraded suspension, which increases safety during emergency vehicle operations. It also has enhanced interior and exterior lighting to illuminate scenes for K9 deployment, and it even has IR projection and night vision, allowing us to see in the dark while staying concealed when needed. Lastly, the body has been enhanced as well, with a contoured brush guard and armored side panels.

The CCSO K9 unit has long benefited from the vast generosity of this great community. We thank you all for your continued support, and we thank the very thoughtful Berger Family Trust for their immense contribution toward the furtherance of our continual mission to safeguard Carson City and its residents.

For additional information regarding CCSO K9, or if you’d like to know how you can donate to the K9 unit, please contact Sergeant Darin Riggin or visit the Sheriff’s Office main building during regular business hours.

Fire at Bella Largo Apartments at Airport and Woodside

An early evening apartment fire broke out at the Bella Largo Apartments at Woodside and Airport.  Neighbors called the fire department and they were on scene rather quick.  Firefighters found the front locked and nobody home.  So they punched in the door and quickly found something burning in a pan on the stove.  Firefighters put it out fast. 

When the renter returns home he will have a lesson learned that you never leave home with something on the stove.

 

Surf Rescue Underway at Devil’s Punchbowl

11:40am  Visitor(s) to Devil’s Punchbowl have gotten into some trouble – in the water.  Depoe Bay Fire is enroute.

11:49am  The visitor appears to be okay.  Reports say the male’s kayak may have been turned over by a wave.  A medical team is enroute to check him out. He may require a quick trip to a hospital.  Newport would be the closest hospital.

Motorcycle collides with a vehicle at Nye and College

11am  A motorcyclist has collided with a vehicle at the intersection of Nye and College.  The motorcyclist was injured but he is sitting upright and breathing.

11:07am  Sounds like the motorcyclist was lucky – he’s up and around although with minor injuries.

Once in a while….

MOVE OVER. IT’S THE LAW!!

Every day, law enforcement officers and emergency workers put their lives on the line to save ours. Even a routine traffic stop has become risky business. The following information comes from the Oregon Department of Transportation: www.oregon.gov/ODOT.

There are many cases where officers are pulled over on the side of the road when inattentive drivers crash into them at high speeds. That’s why there’s a strict law in Oregon designed to protect the people we depend on to protect us.

The Move Over Law (ORS 811.147) states that if you are approaching any type of emergency vehicle, tow truck or roadside assistance vehicle which is stopped on the roadside with emergency lights activated, you must:

  • MOVE OVER into another available lane.
  • If you can’t safely change lanes, SLOW DOWN to a speed that is at least 5 mph below the posted or designated speed of the roadway.
  • In all cases, the driver must try to provide as much room as possible for the emergency vehicle, tow truck or roadside assistance vehicle.

The Move Over Law is in place to help protect law enforcement officers, emergency workers, tow operators and those who routinely provide assistance to motorists along the highways. This group of dedicated professionals face a deadly threat on a daily basis: speeding and inattentive drivers. But the law also exists to protect you. The flashing lights are your cue to move over and slow down.

If you are approaching the scene of a crash, carefully watch for emergency workers directing traffic and follow all of their instructions.

A brush fire badly damaged a home in Genoa

A late afternoon brush and house fire filled the air over the Genoa Cemetery area of Douglas County.  East Fork Firefighters raced to the scene but the home was badly damaged.  As you can see above, the fire was pushed beyond the home toward the east where grass and desert plants were quickly engulfed in flame and threatened a number of other homes right off Jacks Valley Road.  Firefighters were tracking back where the fire was initiated near the burned home and then walked its easterly pace up to Jacks Valley Road where the fire was stopped.  No word yet on what caused the blaze.

There didn’t appear to be any major damage to the cemetery largely due to the swift action of the firefighters.

Still thanking those who preserve America’s Wild Horses…

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you to each and every one of you who has already donated to our Rescue Fund!

So far, we’ve received an outpouring of support bringing us $6,127 closer to our $15,000 goal! As we get closer to reaching our goal, we’d like to introduce you to another foal who calls Nevada’s Virginia Range home to emphasize just how important this work is.

Meet Braveheart:

Foal (Braveheart) sitting in the lap of a volunteer wearing an orange vest.

 

HELP FOALS LIKE BRAVEHEART

Braveheart’s young life began in tragedy. At just 11 days old, Braveheart was orphaned after his mother was hit by a vehicle and died from her injuries.

Local Nevada organization, Wild Horse Connection (WHC) was alerted to the accident and contacted the Least Resistance Training Concepts (LRTC) Technical Large Animal Rescue Team who dispatched to the area. There, they found little Braveheart standing over his mother’s body, heartbroken and afraid.

The rescue team assessed his condition and thankfully, Braveheart was just fine. They then transported him to LBL Equine Rescue where he has been thriving with other orphaned foals ever since!

 

HELP FOALS LIKE BRAVEHEART

Here at AWHC, we are proud of the work our team and our partner organizations like WHC, LRTC and LBL Equine Rescue are doing to help vulnerable foals like Braveheart. But David Morgan, the cost to support the rescue and rehabilitation of these sweet little animals isn’t cheap.

AWHC’s Foal Rescue Fund purchased much needed medication for Braveheart and Ranger, the foal you heard about yesterday, and will be purchasing more bags of milk replacer as well (an ongoing need for growing babies!). The fund also purchased supplies to restock our emergency foal kits to ready the rescue team for responding to rescue calls like these.

We need to make sure we can continue to provide these critical rescue items that help save foals like Braveheart. That’s why we are trying to raise $15,000 by midnight tomorrow to ready ourselves for any rescues that come our way. Can you make a contribution right now to help us reach our goal?

 

DONATE NOW!

Thank you for your support,

AWHC Team
