Las Vegas, NV (July 8, 2022) – The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department received a report of a collision involving a tractor-trailer and at least one other vehicle on Friday morning, July 8.
Due to the accident, a number of southbound lanes on U.S. Route 95 near Eastern Avenue were nearly completely stopped at about 1:20 a.m. To assess the severity of the victims’ injuries, EMS units from Las Vegas and other local responders were sent to the site, compounding the nearly one-hour traffic jam.

The victims of today’s truck wreck are in our thoughts and have our best wishes for a complete recovery.
Truck Crash Injuries Occurring Throughout Las Vegas
If you often travel in Las Vegas, you’re probably used to sharing the roads and highways with enormous trucks. However, if you collide with one of these trucks, it may be quite hazardous. In fact, even life-threatening injuries and deaths may result from these incidents, particularly since the size and impact power of a huge truck may inflict significant property damage and catastrophic injuries to both drivers and passengers.
Have you been injured in a collision with a tractor-trailer? Are you suffocating under the crushing weight of medical expenses and missed income? If you were in a car that was involved in a collision with a tractor-trailer or commercial truck, it goes without saying that the accident may be catastrophic in many ways. In addition, these lawsuits are often highly complex since commercial and transportation organizations do not want to pay for their drivers’ recklessness or other irresponsible actions.
Clearly, drivers must exercise caution while approaching or driving alongside such vehicles. Tractor-trailer accidents accounted for around 9% of Nevada deaths in a single year, per the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Truck drivers also need a considerable amount of space on the road to maneuver or stop safely, resulting in major, devastating accidents when they do occur.
