Las Vegas, NV (June 10, 2022) – On Friday, June 10, Las Vegas Metro Police officers were dispatched to investigate a collision involving the driver of a semi that ended in apparent victim injuries.
The freeway was down to one lane on northbound Interstate 15, close to Exit 43 and D Street, as a result of the crash, which occurred around 12:40 p.m. The collision caused a major traffic jam that left drivers stalled on the highway for over an hour. Additionally, emergency medical personnel from Las Vegas were summoned to the incident scene to determine the severity of the victims’ injuries.
However, neither the LVMPD nor any other first responders who responded to the collision scene have disclosed information about the cause of the wreck or the extent of the injuries sustained by those involved. The police investigation into the circumstances leading up to this traffic accident is continuing, and no new information has been provided to the public.
We express our best wishes for a speedy and complete recovery for everyone injured in today’s accident.
Semi-Trailer Truck Accidents in Greater Las Vegas
According to the most current statistics obtained and released by Nevada authorities, oversized commercial vehicles such as 18-wheeler tractor-trailers, city and metropolitan-area buses, and similar vehicles, including box trucks and cargo vans, contributed substantially to nearly 364,000 injury traffic accidents throughout the nation in a single year.
Worse still, over 4,700 people perished as a result of these collisions, and at least 102,000 more were badly injured. Moreover, Nevada claims an unacceptably high rate of tractor-trailer incidents. This is especially true on the major highways that traverse the Silver State, including but not limited to Highway 95 through Las Vegas, Interstate 15 that connects Las Vegas to Reno and beyond, U.S. Highway 93, and Nevada Interstate 395, passing through Carson City.
Tragically, accidents involving tractor-trailer drivers have the potential to have both life-altering and financially catastrophic effects on victims. This is due to the fact that semi-trailer drivers are more likely than other drivers to travel longer distances in these considerably larger, heavier vehicles, which only exacerbates the severity of any potential accidents.
