HURRICANE – A head-on crash between two vehicles on state Route 9 in Hurricane Friday injured one man who was transported by Life Flight to University Medical Center in Las Vegas.
Officers and medical personnel from the Hurricane City Police Department and Hurricane Valley Fire and Rescue responded to the accident, which occurred at approximately 1:40 p.m. in the area of SR-9 and 2600 West.
