Las Vegas, NV (October 19, 2022) – Just after 12:40 p.m. on October 19, a call was placed to local Las Vegas police reporting a two-vehicle accident.
Due to reports of a multi-driver crash on Highway 95 at Eastern Avenue, police were sent there. One of the vehicles reportedly departed before the announcement could be made. After an additional assessment, the second driver and their passenger were brought by ambulance to a hospital in central Las Vegas.
Medical personnel on the scene have not verified the severity of the victim’s wounds. The Metro Police Department has not provided any information on the incident or the number of victims.
Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their family members. We hope for their complete recovery.
Las Vegas Auto Accident Injuries
Drunk and inebriated driving is responsible for the deaths of close to 50 individuals per day in the United States. Despite a 31% decline in fatalities due to drunk driving over the last several years, drunk driving is still directly responsible for over 10,000 deaths each year in the United States. NHTSA polled motorists in the 48 contiguous states to better provide sobriety checkpoint data for 2013 and 2014.
Statistics released to law enforcement show that 26% of weekend drivers tested positive for chemicals that might impair driving, which can occur when a driver’s attention is diverted from the road. Vehicles and pedestrians both present serious dangers to one another. Inattentive drivers imperil everyone on the road, including themselves. There are several activities that fall under the umbrella of “distracted driving,” including but not limited to chatting with passengers, fiddling with the stereo, and texting.
In 2016, about 3,500 people died in car accidents throughout the United States. Drivers who were multitasking at the time of the accident undoubtedly caused at least some of the deaths that occurred. Hit-and-run drivers are becoming common, accounting for 12 percent of all accidents in certain years. A person who causes an accident in Nevada and then tries to leave the state without dealing with the consequences faces six months in jail and a $2,000 fine.
