Reported Pedestrian Fatalities in Las Vegas

Las Vegas, NV - One Killed in Pedestrian Accident on Durango Dr at Edna AveThe Nevada Department of Transportation forecasts that the number of persons killed and wounded in automobile accidents in the Silver State will hit an all-time high in 2021, the worst year since 2005. Nevada reported 370 road fatalities by the end of December of the preceding year, a 26% increase over the previous year. About 250 people died in Clark County, where the direction of this terrible trend was even worse.

Drunk driving and excessive speed were the key contributors to these fatal incidents, which affected pedestrians disproportionately. According to the final total and statistics, a spike in pedestrian fatalities in the state in 2021 may have resulted in the deaths of up to 85 persons. Texting, making phone calls, and changing the radio are all kinds of distracted driving that raise the chance of an accident. Even worse, these accidents may cause long-term physical and psychological trauma to the people affected. Even if they recover entirely, victims may suffer escalating medical expenses, income loss, and other repercussions.
