Nevada Multi-Vehicle Accident Data
According to preliminary state data recently provided by authorities, 2021 in Nevada saw the deadliest year on roadways in almost 15 years.
In fact, per the latest numbers from Nevada’s Office of Traffic Safety, there were 26 traffic-related deaths in December alone, with approximately 390 fatalities throughout the year in total. This marks a roughly 18% leap when compared to 2020.
Even worse, a regionally conducted study of motor vehicle accidents in Nevada reveals that metropolitan regions in the Silver State account for almost three-fourths of the fatal incidents that take place statewide. Nearly half of these major collisions occurred in Clark County, particularly in Las Vegas, Reno, Sparks, and Clark.
It’s obvious that these motor vehicle collisions are an awful reality of life in Nevada, particularly on the streets of Las Vegas and the surrounding area. Tragically, victims and families are particularly susceptible in the aftermath of injury-causing or fatal vehicle accidents.
