RENO, Nev. — The Nevada Highway Patrol is continuing to investigate a fatal crash that claimed the life of a 76-year-old Lake Tahoe-area woman over the weekend in front of a casino on the southern edge of Reno.
The patrol identified the victim Tuesday as Karin Schulze Brown of Incline Village.
Investigators say she was driving a Mercedes Benz on South Virginia Street near the Tamarak (TA-muh-rack) Junction when a Jeep Liberty pulled out in front of her at about 5 p.m. Saturday.
She hit the brakes but wasn’t able to stop in time and crashed into the Jeep.
She suffered serious injuries and was taken to a Reno hospital where she later died.
The patrol says impairment is not suspected to be a contributing factor in the case. But anyone with any information should contact the patrol at 775-687-9618.
