Deaths Reported in Nevada Semi-Truck Accidents
According to the latest data and accident reports provided by the Nevada Department of Transportation, the state had around 52,900 car accidents in a single year. Tractor-trailer or large vehicle accidents have considerably worse statistics. In fact, across the Silver State, truck-related deaths accounted for almost 10% of all traffic fatalities. Considering the vastness of Nevada’s highways and roadways, major truck accidents occur all too often throughout the state.
Worse still, a tragic fact is that these accidents resulted in the deaths of 4,780 people, proving that the frequency of tractor-trailer accidents in Nevada is high. In particular, this is true on major routes such as Highway 95 and Interstate 15, both traversing major urban areas like Las Vegas and Reno, as well as other multi-lane highways, including Nevada Interstate 395 through Carson City.
