A portion of E Street in Hawthorne was shut down Saturday evening after a vehicle accident.

An early afternoon accident on E Street in Hawthorne resulted in a local man being flown to Reno for injuries.

On Saturday, Nov. 28, a Dodge pickup and utility trailer driven by Ken Kirby, of Hawthorne, caused damage down the main street in Hawthorne, which resulted in bystander Robert Jaramillo being injured.

The outside northbound travel lane was closed for hours after the accident which is still under investigation by Nevada Highway Patrol, according to Sgt. William Murwin.

It is unknown what injuries Jaramillo received or if charges will be brought against Kirby. At press time, a release from Murwin had not been received.
