Las Vegas, NV – Pedestrian Pinned Between Cars, Driver Arrested at E. Tropicana Ave and Maryland Pky

Las Vegas, NV (May 20, 2022) – A driver was apprehended following a multi-vehicle crash that left one driver with critical injuries east of the Las Vegas Strip on Tuesday, May 17th.

According to sources, the collision took place at about 11:35 p.m. on East Tropicana Avenue, in the area of Maryland Parkway when the drivers of a Toyota Corolla and a Ford F-150 were involved in a fender-bender. 

They pulled over in the far lefthand lane and were both outside of their cars inspecting the damage when another driver failed to exercise due care and crashed into the back of the F-150. 

The force of the impact shoved the truck into the driver of the Corolla and pinned him between the two vehicles.

The victim was transported to Sunrise Hospital’s trauma center in critical condition, where he remained as of Wednesday.

Police said that the driver of the F-150 stayed at the scene and showed no signs of impairment.

The driver who struck the pick-up, however, upon showing signs of impairment, was arrested and transported to the Clark County Detention Center.

This incident is under investigation by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department’s collision investigation section.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Victims of Pedestrian Collisions in Nevada

Las Vegas, NV - Pedestrian Pinned Between Cars, Driver Arrested at E. Tropicana Ave and Maryland Pky

Two of the most frequent causes of road accidents in Nevada are driving while under the influence and failing to yield at stop signs or lights. Additionally, in Nevada, these two elements, combined with distracted or irresponsible driving and a flagrant disregard for the speed limit, are the primary causes of pedestrian injuries.

Sadly, victims often must cope with crippling financial woes, ongoing medical issues, and severe psychological distress. When victims are killed as a result of these circumstances, their families can find themselves in a rather challenging and emotionally-draining situation. Following a pedestrian crash, families are oftentimes faced with excessive medical or funeral and burial expenses while they try to mourn their loved one.
