STATELINE, Nev. – A 19-year-old woman was transported to Renown Regional Medical Center in Reno via a CALSTAR helicopter with substantial injuries after a vehicle accident Wednesday morning on Kingsbury Grade.

At 8:49 a.m. a black Jeep Cherokee was traveling eastbound on SR 207 and crossed over the center line for unknown reasons, according to Nevada Highway Patrol Spokesman Dan Lopez. The front-left end of Jeep hit the front-left end of BlueGo bus driven by

Randy Briney, 53, of Carson City. The accident happened near Juniper Lane, less than a mile east of U.S. Highway 50 on State Route 207.

The driver of the Jeep, a 19-year-old woman, was then sent to Renown. The name of the 19 year old is not being released at this time, Lopez said.

Both drivers were wearing their seat belts.

State Route 207 was closed temporarily until the accident investigation concluded. Alcohol is not suspected as a contributing factor to the accident.
