Two Saturday morning vehicle collisions had one northwest valley road down to one lane of traffic.
Las Vegas police responded to the first accident at 7:53 a.m. on Craig Road just west of Rainbow Boulevard. The two-car collision resulted in minor injuries.
The second incident at 8:13 a.m. involved a patrol vehicle that had responded to the scene. Police were blocking off two lanes of westbound Craig Road to investigate the accident when a female driver traveling eastbound crossed the median into the opposite direction of traffic, narrowly missing an officer on foot and hit a patrol car.
There were no injuries sustained in the second accident and westbound Craig reopened about 9:30 a.m.
