Las Vegas, NV (October 17, 2021) – Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak suffered injuries in a traffic accident that occurred on Sunday afternoon, October 17, authorities say.
Per officers with the Las Vegas Police Department, the two-car collision happened around 1:00 p.m. at the intersection of Rainbow Boulevard and Russell Road in Las Vegas. A statement issued by the governor’s spokesperson noted that Governor Sisolak and the other driver both suffered injuries. EMS transported both to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada as a precaution.
Doctors released Governor Sisolak about two hours later. He is resting at home, according to his office.
Authorities did not provide further information about the accident or the other driver.
The investigation is ongoing.
Our thoughts are with Governor Sisolak, the other driver, and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
