Las Vegas, NV (May 10, 2022) – On the morning of Tuesday, May 10, an unidentified victim was hurt in a collision occurring in the Sunrise Manor region.
At 9:30 a.m., Las Vegas Metro Police, Las Vegas EMS, and fire rescue crews arrived at the scene of the collision. According to authorities, the multiple-vehicle wreck occurred as two cars approached the Marion Drive exit on eastbound Charleston Boulevard and collided, forcing the closure of the roadway and causing traffic to back up for miles.
The LVMPD first said that the event involved only these two drivers, however, investigators did not go into depth about what happened before the crash or what caused it. The total number of persons who were hurt and the severity of their injuries are likewise unknown. Investigators are working to piece together evidence surrounding the wreck and will provide additional information over the next week.
Our hearts go out to the people who were hurt in this incident. We wish them a full recovery.
Nevada Multi-Vehicle Accident Statistics
According to preliminary state data recently released by officials, Nevada had its deadliest year on the roads in nearly 15 years in 2021. And per most recent statistics from Nevada’s Office of Traffic Safety, there were close to 30 traffic-related deaths in December alone, for a total of 390 fatalities by the end of the year.
When compared to 2020, this is an 18% increase. Even worse, a regional analysis of motor vehicle accidents in Nevada found that metropolitan areas in the Silver State account for nearly three-quarters of all fatal occurrences statewide.
Furthermore, Clark County, namely Las Vegas, Reno, Sparks, and Clark, accounted for half of these serious crashes. These car accidents are clearly an unfortunate facet of life in Nevada, particularly on the streets of Las Vegas and the surrounding region. Regrettably, in the aftermath of injury-causing or fatal car accidents, victims and their families are extremely vulnerable.
