The Nye County Sheriff's Office is searching for three men who allegedly threw a large rock through a car windshield Thursday, severely injuring a 20-year-old woman.
Officials said the incident, which appears to have been planned, happened about 5 p.m. Thursday at a service station near Highway 372 and Blagg Road in Pahrump.
Authorities said a 27-year-old man had driven his vehicle to the service station, where someone allegedly threw a rock through the windshield, which struck his female passenger.
The woman was taken by helicopter to University Medical Center's trauma unit with severe injuries to the head, officials said. She was listed in critical condition.
Reports from witnesses helped detectives identify three suspects as David Neil Taylor, 23; Timothy Michael Hanahan, 23; and Kevin Thomas Hannah, 20, officials said.
Taylor is wanted on charges of attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, battery with a deadly weapon and intimidating a witness in connection with the incident, officials said. Hanahan and Hannah are wanted on charges of accessory to attempted murder, accessory to assault with a deadly weapon and accessory to battery with a deadly weapon.
Investigators believe at least one of the suspects may have fled to the Las Vegas area.
Officials are not disclosing further details about the circumstances while they follow up on leads and continue the investigation.
