Las Vegas, NV (September 16, 2022) – Around 11:30 a.m. on September 16, a car collision occurred in the Las Vegas area.
It is unclear how many individuals were hurt in the collision, but officials have confirmed that at least two were hurt. Drivers were warned by Metro Police to stay away from the stretch of northbound I-515/Highway 95 between Eastern Avenue and the airport. There has been no public update on the conditions of the two victims who were taken away in an ambulance, nor has any information been released on the extent of their injuries. The police will provide further details after they have interviewed all parties and relevant witnesses.
Metro Police have begun reviewing prospective witnesses for questioning now that the investigation has begun formally.
Our sincere hopes for a full recovery go out to the injured victims.
Frequency of Vehicle Crashes in Nevada
The Nevada Transportation Authority and the Department of Transportation report an increase in traffic fatalities from January to June of 2022. Although the national death rate has increased by 11%, Nevada still maintains the highest rate in the United States. The mortality and injury toll in Clark County increased by 25% from January to June. Most people in Nevada’s main cities still use their own automobiles for daily transportation; thus, the recent increase in gasoline prices has probably cut down on the number of accidents there. The number of people killed in car accidents seems to have risen over the previous three years despite rising highway maintenance expenses, gasoline prices, COVID-19 limits and closures, and other variables.
Always remember that a car crash’s emotional and financial fallout, even if it only results in minor injuries and property damage, may be significant, if not life-altering.
