Las Vegas, NV (June 9, 2022) – The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is investigating an accident involving two motorists that occurred on Thursday, June 9, in the wider metropolitan region and reportedly led to victim injuries.
On Thursday at about 11:00 p.m. local time, authorities responded to a multi-vehicle collision at the intersection of southbound Fort Apache Road and westbound Pebble Road. According to initial reports, two drivers collided in what seemed to be a rear-end accident or fender bender, and one person was transferred by ambulance to a local medical clinic.
However, the precise number of those injured is yet unclear. Officers asked that witnesses contact the LVMPD if they have specifics or other information about the incident. Currently, investigators are recreating the circumstances leading up to the incident and will provide further details as they become available.
We are hoping for the swift recovery of all injured victims.
Traffic Accident Injuries in Las Vegas
Intoxicated driving and excessive speed are the top causes of road fatalities in Las Vegas and across Nevada. In reality, impaired driving was the leading cause of accidents, injuries, and fatalities in Nevada in 2018, accounting for almost 135 deaths. A close second is excessive speed, and both are readily avoided. In addition, the use of alcohol, marijuana, or prescription drugs while driving is responsible for at least 43% of fatal crashes in Nevada.
In contrast, excessive speeding accounted for almost 32% of all road deaths in Nevada. Even worse, high-speed collisions are becoming more common in the Las Vegas area. Over 100 mph speeds are reported in an increasing number of accidents, with the greater Las Vegas area issuing the bulk of penalties for these offenses.
