Las Vegas, NV (May 11, 2022) – An unnamed victim was injured in an accident in the area of Sunrise Manor on the morning of Wednesday, May 11.
Las Vegas Metro Police, EMTs, and fire rescue units arrived at the crash scene at about 11:50 a.m. The two-vehicle collision transpired as two automobiles neared Exit 73 and Eastern Avenue off U.S. Highway 95 and collided, closing the right northbound lanes and causing traffic to back up for miles, according to authorities. The LVMPD initially reported that just two motorists were involved in the incident; however, detectives did not go into detail about what transpired before the accident or what contributed to it.
The actual number of people injured, as well as the scope of their injuries, is presently unclear. Investigators are putting the pieces of their preliminary report together and will release more information in the following week.
Our best wishes for a speedy recovery are with those who were injured in this wreck.
