June 5, 2018

RENO, Nev. (AP) — The suspect in a road-rage incident in Reno has been arrested on multiple charges after the victim died from injuries suffered in the May 20 crash.

Reno police said Tuesday 30-year-old Jessica Ogden of Denver, Colorado died on May 31 at a rehabilitation center in Northern California.

Detectives arrested Cody Douglas of Reno at a south Reno business on Tuesday and charged him with suspicion of reckless driving causing death, three counts of child endangerment, failure to maintain a lane, stop at a red light and stop at an accident.

Police say Douglas allegedly fled the scene of an initial road-rage incident on Interstate 580 and ran a red light on Vassar Street before crashing into another vehicle. Three young children in his car escaped injury.

It’s not clear if Douglas has a lawyer or will be appointed one.
