Highway 28 is open in both directions following a single-vehicle wreck early Tuesday morning, Aug. 29.

Responders found a large boulder on the road, and a vehicle on its side, when they arrived at the scene about 3 miles north of the highway’s intersection with U.S. 50.

According to Nevada Highway Patrol, the driver of the vehicle was transported to a hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The boulder also took down a tree, which had to be removed before the highway could be reopened.

Highway 28 was reopened just before 8 a.m. NHP first reported the closure via twitter at 6:18 a.m.
