Las Vegas, NV (May 3, 2022) – Las Vegas Metro Police Department officers reported a serious multi-car collision that involved a semi-truck and resulted in injuries on Tuesday afternoon, May 3.
At 12:15 p.m., a truck accident on northbound I-15 at Tropicana Avenue shut down multiple left lanes. Though fire rescue units and medics were summoned to clear the scene and evaluate victims, police have not released any information about the injured victims or what caused the incident.
Authorities are still investigating the accident and have not released any additional information at this time.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families. We hope for their full recovery.
Semi-Truck Accidents in Nevada
Large commercial vehicles were involved in about 345,000 incidents across the country in just one recent year, according to the most recent figures issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
According to these statistics, about 4,000 of these incidents resulted in fatalities, with an estimated 100,000 more accidents involving tractor-trailers resulting in serious injuries.
Unfortunately, these commercial truck accidents are all too common in Nevada. This is especially true in Las Vegas, Reno, Carson City, and other areas with congested streets and bustling freeways.
After a serious accident, especially those involving large tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles, victims typically face serious financial roadblocks on top of long-term physical issues and severe emotional distress. In the case that victims succumb to their injuries as a result of one of these incidents, their grieving family members must then cope with expensive medical bills and steep funerary costs.
That’s why, if you’ve sustained injuries or lost a loved one in a preventable truck accident, you should get in contact with an attorney right away. You may find that you have legal recourse and options to pursue a fair, full monetary reward.
