A Reno man was sentenced to 4-10 years in prison on Wednesday in connection with a Thanksgiving 2022 drunk driving collision that resulted in severe injuries.

Adam Curtis Campbell, 34, was driving a silver dodge pickup eastbound on Genoa Lane at high speed on Nov. 24 and failed to slow when approaching the intersection with Highway 395 and crashed into a Toyota Tacoma at around 8:30 p.m.

According to court documents, the force of the collision caused both vehicles to roll and resulting in substantial bodily harm to the driver and passenger.

At least four ambulances responded to the scene.

This was Campbell’s second felony DUI offense, which could have resulted in a maximum prison sentence of 2-20 years.

• A man who was convicted of his first felony DUI in Douglas County in 2006 is facing a lengthy prison term after he admitted to driving under the influence.

Kevin Patrick Fanning, 58, faces a sentence of 3-8 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000 under an agreement with prosecutors.

The maximum sentence is up to 15 years. He was convicted of the first felony after he took off with a Genoa resident’s Suburban in a drunken joyride on Oct. 1, 2006. The Genoan pursued him, catching him in Minden and wielding a crowbar detained him until deputies arrived.

According to court documents, he was arrested Sept. 1, 2023, passed out with the vehicle in gear and a key in the ignition. He had a .3 blood alcohol content. Since his initial felony in Minden, he was also convicted of DUI in Placer County in 2012, and in Mesa County, Colo., in 2019, according to prosecutors.

He must undergo a substance evaluation before his April 16 sentencing.
