Las Vegas, NV (May 29, 2022) – A motorcycle rider was hit and killed in an accident that took place with a sedan in the northeast Las Vegas Valley on Saturday afternoon, May 29, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.
The incident was first reported around 1:20 p.m., with LVMPD officers reporting to the corner of Alto Avenue and North Ringe Lane, close to Nellis Boulevard and Carey Avenue, around that time. Initial information released by investigators suggests that the motorcyclist, riding on a 2004 Honda Shadow, was heading westbound on Alto when they collided with the driver of a 2022 Hyundai Accent who turned left in front of their path.
The rider, identified only as a 43-year-old Las Vegas local, suffered critical injuries and was pronounced deceased by medics at the scene. The driver of the Hyundai was transported to a hospital by ambulance but suffered only minor injuries. The driver also did not show any signs of impairment, though Las Vegas officers are still investigating the cause of this deadly incident.
Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to the family of this accident’s victim.
Las Vegas Motorcycle Crash Deaths
According to figures supplied by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), around 14 passenger automobiles out of every one hundred thousand are involved in a fatal incident. Motorcyclists, however, have a far higher risk of being badly wounded or killed in traffic incidents. Motorcycle crashes result in more than 73 deaths per 100,000 people. In only one year, more than 50 individuals have been murdered while riding motorbikes throughout the state of Nevada.
Although motorcycle death rates have been steadily rising over the past decade, this year’s data shows a decrease from the previous year. Regardless, it is clear that catastrophic or even deadly motorcycle accidents are a sad aspect of life in Nevada, particularly on the busy streets of Reno, Las Vegas, Clark, Carson City, and other cities and villages around the state. Furthermore, when it comes to occurrences that end in death, the victims and their families pay the price in the aftermath. People who are affected often face difficult financial situations, continuous physical issues, and emotional pain.
When victims are killed as a result of these events, their loved ones may find themselves in a difficult position. Families are frequently forced to carry the financial burden of expensive medical and funeral expenditures. However, if you or a loved one has been injured or has died as a consequence of a motorcycle accident, you may be entitled to compensation.
