A passenger in a blue Ford Explorer sustained minor injuries after the vehicle rolled over at Highway 395 and Stephanie Way at about 11 a.m.

Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Dan Lopez said the Explorer’s driver failed to see traffic stopped for the light and stepped on the brakes.

The vehicle struck the cable barrier and flipped over onto its side. Lopez said the passenger had minor injuries. She refused treatment from medics.



Northbound traffic was down to one lane on Highway 395 due to the accident, causing vehicles to back up half way to Johnson Lane.

Lopez said the cable barrier prevented the vehicle from entering the southbound lanes, avoiding a more serious accident.
