Las Vegas, NV (September 1, 2022) – Around 3:40 p.m. on Thursday, September 31st, three automobiles collided on northbound Interstate 15 near Tropicana Avenue.
At 3:50 p.m., first responders arrived at the scene, but it was still unknown how many individuals had been hurt or sent to the hospital despite their best efforts. Drivers have been warned to avoid the area while Las Vegas officials conduct an on-site investigation and cleaning. Information will be forthcoming when police have interviewed all parties and relevant witnesses.
Metro Police have not finished their investigation and are looking to hear from anybody who may have seen anything earlier today.
We are praying for a speedy and full recovery for everyone involved in today’s car accident.
Figures on Injuries From Vehicle Crashes in Nevada
According to statistics released by the Nevada Department of Transportation, the number of lives lost in traffic accidents rose in the state between January and June of 2022. The mortality toll throughout the country is up 11%, with Nevada seeing the greatest rise. From January through June of this year, the number of fatalities and serious injuries in Clark County rose by 23%.
Although most people in Nevada’s major cities still depend on cars for mobility, the recent rise in gasoline prices may have reduced the number of fatal accidents. Though highway maintenance expenses have grown, fuel prices have risen, COVID-19 has been implemented, and shutdown limitations have been put in place, it seems that the number of fatalities that may be attributable to accidents has increased over the previous three years.
Survivors of car accidents who escape with relatively minor wounds or damages may face insurmountable emotional and financial challenges in the following years.
