Man’s condition

serious after crash

A 45-year-old Reno man remained in serious condition with head injuries late Tuesday after he crashed his 2004 Honda Element on Highway 49 just south of North San Juan, according to the CHP.

Peter Neves was driving south on the highway at approximately 1:45 p.m. Monday when he drifted toward the right side, then overcorrected and his vehicle overturned, said CHP Officer Dina Hernandez.

Neves received major injuries to his head, she said, and was transported by helicopter to Sutter Roseville Medical Center. Alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the accident, Hernandez said.
