Las Vegas, NV (May 25, 2022) – Two people were killed during a single-vehicle accident in the Spring Valley area of Las Vegas on Tuesday, May 24th.
The incident took place at about 5:15 a.m. when a 2012 Chevrolet Corvette traveling at a high rate of speed on South Jones Boulevard struck the median.
The Corvette then struck a curb line and a power pole before smashing through a fence, flipping, and coming to an uncontrolled stop in a parking lot.
Witnesses reported seeing a heavily damaged vehicle lying in a parking lot off of South Jones Boulevard in the area of West Flamingo Road.
The vehicle’s passenger, who has since been identified as a 34-year-old woman from Las Vegas, died at the scene.
The driver, a 34-year-old man from Las Vegas, was thrown from the vehicle on impact. Paramedics transported him to University Medical Center where he passed away due to the severity of his injuries.
The crash also resulted in power outages for several surrounding businesses and homes.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time.
Top Causes of Nevada Vehicle Accidents
As reported by the most current crash statistics from the state’s authorities, most deadly collisions across the state of Nevada during the past few years have been caused by drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Across the Silver State, more than 520 people lost their lives due to collisions caused by drunk or drugged drivers in 2017. This figure embodies a 15-year record high for the number of victims who had their lives cut short as a result of drivers who were under the influence.
In contrast to the same time in 2020, the number of deadly motor vehicle crashes in Nevada has more than tripled.
Also, when a victim is killed during an accident caused by another driver’s carelessness, their family members are left in an emotionally traumatizing, extremely frustrating position. Burial or cremation expenses, along with the costly medical bills that the victim amassed, have to be taken care of by the grieving family members, even as they try to cope with the unnecessary death of a loved one.
