LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- An accident involving seven motorcycles and three vehicles blocked most traffic on northbound Interstate 15 near Russell Road for several hours Saturday afternoon.
"Four of the five people who were transported to UMC are being treated and released," Nevada Highway Patrol Sgt. Kevin Honea told News3. "The fifth one may or may not be admitted. None of the injuries are serious. The scene looks a lot worse than it is."
Honea said witnesses said the accident started when the driver of a red BMW lost control for unknown reasons and hit the center median before rebounding back into travel lanes 1, 2 and 3. The motorcycles then ran into the BMW.
"We are putting the BMW on a trailer now and have documents most of the scene," Honea said at 4:30 p.m. "We hope to have all lanes back open in about an hour."
The accident happened about 1:25 p.m.
