Frank Thompson Involved in Accident on Highway 89 in Graeagle
GRAEAGLE, CA (June 1, 2021) – Officers arrested Frank Thompson following an accident at the parking lot of a restaurant on Highway 89 on May 30.
According to the California Highway Patrol, the collision happened in the parking lot of the Graeagle Mountain Frostee around 2:22 PM.
Based on a report, the suspect was driving his 1969 Chevrolet Camaro and parked in the Frostee parking lot. At that time, he was revving the engine when he backed out of his parking stall at a speed causing him to spin the tires and lose traction. Then, Thompson stopped for a brief moment while again revving the engine. He then accelerated in reverse as the Camaro continued backward and to the left, hitting a 17-year-old female from Carson City, Nevada.
Consequently, the impact slammed the victim against the building, pinning her in between the rear bumper and the building for approximately ten seconds. Then, an off-duty Reno Police Department officer immediately placed the Camaro in Neutral before pushing the car off the victim.
As a result, the juvenile sustained a major injury to her leg. Emergency crews transported her to Reno via CareFlight.
Officers arrested Frank Thompson for reckless driving causing great bodily harm. The investigation into the case is ongoing.
