ZEPHYR COVE, Nev. (KRNV & -- Nevada Highway Patrol is investigating a crash that left a man seriously injured near Zephyr Cove.

NHP says the crash took place approximately a half-mile west of Zephyr Cove at around 6:50 this morning.

According to NHP, a green 1993 Cadillac 4-door sedan was traveling eastbound when the male adult driver crossed the double-yellow line and hit the front of an approaching blue 2010 Subaru Forester occupied by an adult female. The driver of the Cadillac sustained serious injuries in the event and was airlifted to Renown Regional Center in Reno by Care Flight. The two young children riding in the sedan with him received only minor injuries and were transported by ground ambulance to Barton Memorial Hospital in South Lake Tahoe, California. The female driver was not injured.

The crash caused the temporary closure of the four-lane highway for nearly 90 minutes while troopers completed their on-scene portion of the investigation and waited for tow trucks to remove the involved vehicles. The roadway was completely opened shortly before 8:30 am.

Trooper Bob Wright is investigating this accident. Witnesses with any information about this event should contact him via the Department of Public Safety-Communications Center at (775) 687-0400 regarding case number NHP-130602410.

The names of those involved should be available and will be released tomorrow morning.

Y is it always "after"? This word is really more a place-holder or sequencer, especially in time; than a grammatical one. This tendency appears clumsy to me. "by","in", even "following" & a re-wording using 'car crash' or 'accident', this then flows using these regularly-placed participles. is this like, when all the TV anchors always say "well" before every story? I'm all, i'm like, educated.
