Three hurt in Carson Street accident

Three people were taken to Carson-Tahoe Hospital Tuesday morning after an accident at the intersection of North Carson Street and Arrowhead Drive.

Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Mark Zacha said a grey sport utility vehicle driven by 61-year-old Roberta Good of Dayton pulled out in front of a white limousine owned by Harrah's.

Zacha said Good, who was westbound on Arrowhead Drive, was trying to cross Carson Street about 11:35 a.m., did not see the limousine and struck it in the right front fender.

Good and two passengers from the limousine were taken to the hospital by ambulance.

The limousine, which ended up straddling the median between the lanes on Carson Street, was driven by 56-year-old Bette St. Laurence of Stateline who said, "There was nothing I could do."

The windshield of a third vehicle, driven by Suhani Schottenheimer, was smashed by flying debris, Zacha said.
