Fernley's Main Street (US-95A/50A) was partially blocked by emergency vehicles. We made our way carefully past the scene.
A car crashed into the corner of this building. We don't have the details, but it seems like the car must have been traveling west, lost control, and crossed all lanes, run onto the sidewalk, and into the building.
Later that afternoon we saw the large hole in the building where the car had been. By the time we came back with a camera the next day, the hole had been boarded over. There were visible cracks in the walls where the blocks were shifted, and the building had been red-tagged. The thrift-shop staff were hastily evacuating the store's stock from the building.
In one of the photos above you can see a tow truck preparing to pull the wrecked car. That's from Hanneman Service, driven by the same person as had just filled our propane bottle, and because of his having been called out to this accident scene (which was less than 100 meters from his shop), there was nobody to fill the RV's propane tank when we came by. So we went and dealt with different tanks (the waste-water holding tanks) instead and we'll deal with the on-board propane tank this coming week. Also then, we may find out more details about the accident from Hanneman's on account of them having to do the vehicle recovery.
Update, 20:30: While out walking after dinner, we ran across the man from Hanneman's, who said apparently the driver was distracted by her child, and when she reached over to the child, she lost control of the car, sending it into the building.
