Deputy Narrowly Dodges Wrong-Way Driver in Reno

A Washoe County Sheriff’s Office deputy narrowly avoided a head-on collision with a wrong-way driver in Reno, Nevada, in the early morning hours of May 13.

In a post on Facebook, the sheriff’s office said a patrol deputy was driving on South Virginia Street near Pleasant Valley Drive when they were “met with headlights coming directly towards them from a truck driving on the wrong side of the road.”

The sheriff’s office said the deputy quickly stopped the driver, who was then charged with driving under the influence. Credit: Washoe County Sheriff’s Office via Storyful
